Guilty verdicts in Hudson murders

The former brother-in-law of the Oscar-winning actress and singer Jennifer Hudson has been found guilty of murdering three members of her family in 2008.

A jury in Chicago convicted William Balfour of killing Ms Hudson's mother, brother and seven-year-old nephew, for which he now faces a mandatory life prison sentence.
