CHICAGO — A trial has been set for the man charged in the slayings of three members of Jennifer Hudson’s family.

Cook County Judge Charles Burns on Thursday set jury selection for April 9 in the trial of William Balfour.

Balfour is charged with first-degree murder in the October 2008 slayings of Hudson’s mother, brother and 7-year-old nephew.

Balfour was the estranged husband of Jennifer Hudson’s sister, Julia. Prosecutors allege he shot her family in a jealous rage because Julia Hudson was dating another man.
