In incredibly sad news, American Idol star and Academy Award winning actress Jennifer Hudson's mother, Darnell Donerson, and brother, Jason Hudson, were shot to death last night in their Chicago home. An Amber Alert was also filed for Hudson's nephew, 7-year-old Julian King, who was reported missing from the scene of the crime. Police have arrested William Balfour, Hudson's brother-in-law, in connection with the deaths. Balfour is being questioned at the moment, but has not been charged with any crime at this time. Hudson's sister, Julia, had been separated from Balfour, and according to Balfour's mother, "Donerson had ordered him to move out of the family's home last winter." MSNBC is reporting that "at least one of the victims suffered defensive wounds, said authorities who described the shooting as domestic violence." The search for Julian King continues.[CNN][MSNBC]
