Twelve jurors and six alternates are being seated in the Chicago trial of the man accused of the 2008 slayings of singer and actress Jennifer Hudson’s family.
Cook County Circuit Judge Charles Burns and attorneys will resume work Tuesday morning seating a panel after 14 people were selected on Monday.
William Balfour is accused of killing Hudson’s mother, brother and nephew. The 30-year-old Balfour faces a maximum life sentence if convicted.
Hudson’s name came up frequently during questioning, though most of the would-be jurors insisted that despite what they knew about her or heard in the media about the case, they could consider only the evidence presented at the trial.
