Guilty verdicts in Jennifer Hudson family murder trial

A US man has been found guilty of shooting dead three members of actress Jennifer Hudson's family in 2008.
William Balfour, Ms Hudson's former brother-in-law, was convicted on three counts of first-degree murder by a Chicago jury.
Prosecutors said Balfour killed Ms Hudson's mother, brother and seven-year-old nephew after his estranged wife refused to reconcile with him.
Ms Hudson was overcome as the verdict was read, her eyes filling with tears.
The Oscar-winning actress was the first witness called in the trial and had attended every day of testimony.
The jury deliberated for three days before delivering its verdict. Balfour, 31, now faces a mandatory life prison sentence.
