Prosecutors lay out case in killing of Jennifer Hudson's family members
Must have been a serious affront, right?
According to People, prosecutors allege that it was jealousy, pure and simple.
They say that Balfour was enraged by a birthday gift he presumed had been given by another man to his estranged wife, Julia, Hudson's sister.
There was a small birthday party for Julia held on Oct. 23 at the home of her mother, Darnell Donerson.
Balfour spotted the gift when he came to the house the next day, authorities say.
Prosecutors allege that he returned to the house after Julia left for work and shot her mother and brother and then took her son and killed him.
If that doesn't sound like a recipe for an insanity defense, I don't know what does.
