KESHIA KNIGHT PULLIAMbetter(1)Two teenage girls have been found guilty of murdering a 39-year-old woman in her own home.

Two teenage girls who beat a woman to death in her home in a “sustained and brutal attack” before posting mocking images on Snapchat face life in prison after being convicted of her murder.

The girls sobbed uncontrollably as the jury delivered its verdict following three hours and six minutes of deliberations at the end of an eight-week trial at Leeds crown court.

The pair were led out of the dock with their faces in their hands and could be heard crying as they left. They will be sentenced on Thursday, and face life sentences.

‘Satan was here’: Five killed at homeless camp

cpl_101c1 artsceneLONG BEACH, California (AP) — Family members and friends in search of answers and solace descended Monday on a homeless encampment where five people were shot to death over the weekend, and police hoped an anonymous caller would come forward and say more.

“There is still a demon out there killing innocent people,” said Don Morgan, 58, who said he was friends with the victims but wasn’t homeless himself. “Satan was here that day.”

The bodies of three men and two women were found Sunday in the camp, which is between commercial buildings and the 405 Freeway and appears to be accessible only by way of a drainage channel.


October 27, 2008. The ground insiders says, police have found the body of a young boy inside a White SUV. Officials suspect the body may be Jennifer Hudson’s 7 year old nephew Julian King.

Police have not yet confirmed that the body belongs to Julian King – but things don’t look good. In addition to Julian, police had been looking for a white Chevrolet Suburban plate number X584859 (which belonged to Jason Hudson).

We’ll give you an update as soon as we get more…

EDITOR’S UPDATE – The ground insiders claims that the body of the boy found in the SUV “appeared to have been tortured.”

EDITOR’S UPDATE 2 – The SUV found this morning was CONFIRMED to belong to Jason Hudson. There is still no confirmation as to WHETHER the body belongs to Julian.

October 25, 2008. CHICAGO (AP) — Authorities investigating the shooting deaths of Jennifer Hudson’s mother and brother were searching for the missing 7-year-old nephew of the Oscar-winning actress.

A suspect in the deaths was in custody Friday night, but young Julian King had not been seen since the bodies of Darnell Donerson, 57, and Jason Hudson, 29, were found Friday afternoon.

A family member entering Donerson’s South Side home Friday afternoon found the woman shot on the living room floor. Responding officers later found Hanson shot in the bedroom, police said.

At least one of the victims suffered defensive wounds, said authorities who described the shooting as domestic violence.

William Balfour, a man suspected in the deaths, was arrested Friday but had not been charged, law enforcement sources told the Chicago Tribune and Chicago Sun-Times.

Police spokeswoman Monique Bond said investigators were talking to “a number of people in custody” but she declined to elaborate. An Amber Alert issued Friday said Balfour was a suspect in the double homicide.

Records from the Illinois Department of Corrections show Balfour, 27, is on parole and spent nearly seven years in prison for attempted murder, vehicular hijacking and possessing a stolen vehicle. Public records show one of Balfour’s addresses as the home where Donerson and Jason Hudson were shot.

The Cook County medical examiner’s office said autopsies for Donerson and Jason Hudson were pending.

Balfour’s mother, Michelle, said her son had been married to Hudson’s sister, Julia, for several years, but they were separated. She also said Donerson had ordered him to move out of the family’s home last winter.

Jennifer Hudson’s personal publicist, Lisa Kasteler, said the family wanted privacy.

The tragedy comes as Hudson, who grew up in Chicago, continues to reach new heights in her career. Her song “Spotlight” is No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop charts and her recently released, self-tiled debut album has been a top seller. She was featured in this year’s blockbuster “Sex and the City” movie and is also starring in the hit film “The Secret Life of Bees.”

She won an Academy Award for best supporting actress in 2007 for her role in “Dreamgirls.” In an interview last year with Vogue, Hudson credited her mother with encouraging her to audition for “American Idol,” which launched her career.

The singer, whose father died when she was a teenager, described herself as very close to her family. In a recent AP interview she said her family, which includes older siblings Julia and Jason, helped keep her grounded.

“My faith in God and my family, they’re very realistic and very normal, they’re not into the whole limelight kind of thing, so when I go home to Chicago that’s just another place that’s home,” she said. “I stand in line with everybody else, or, when I go home to my mom I’m just Jennifer, (so she says), ‘You get up and you take care of your own stuff.’ And I love that; I don’t like when people tell you everything you want to hear, I want to hear the truth, you know what I mean.”

Hudson recently announced her engagement to David Otunga, best known for his stint on VH1’s reality show “I Love New York.”

Hudson’s representatives would not disclose her whereabouts Friday. She had been scheduled to appear Monday in Los Angeles to collect an ensemble cast honor at the Hollywood Awards for “The Secret Life of Bees” with co-stars including Alicia Keys, Queen Latifah and Dakota Fanning.

Jennifer Hudson’s Mother & Brother Found Dead

Exclusive Breaking News Report

Jennifer Hudson’s Mother Found Dead

TMZ Reports:

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ Jennifer Hudson’s mother was one of two victims shot and killed in Chicago earlier today.

A neighbor tells TMZ the other victim was Jennifer’s brother Jason. A cousin who lived nearby discovered the bodies. Read more

I am so sorry to hear this has happen, I am totally sorry for Jennifer’s passing of her mother & brother as well as the missing 7 year old little boy, may he come home safe.


UPDATE: News stations are now reporting that Jennifer’s mother Darnell Hudson and the other unidentified victim were killed by gunshot.  It is also being reported that Jennifer’s nephew Julian, her sister Julia’s son, is now being held for ransom.

UPDATE 2: Neighbors of Jennifer’s mother are now reporting that the unidentified male victim is Jennifer’s brother Jason.

UPDATE 3: Early reports were incorrect concerning the fire.  There was no fire but the fire department was called.  We have also just learned that Jennifer’s sister’s car has been stolen and the thief has put out threats to the family.  We’re also told police are leaning toward this being a domestic dispute.

Jennifer’s 7 year old nephew Julian King

UPDATE 4: A search is under way for a young boy who is missing from the home. A child, likely Jennifer’s 7-year-old nephew, Julian King, is missing. Police are searching for an SUV (we’re told it was Jason’s) that was seen in the area–a 1994 white Suburban, Illinois license plate number X584859. A source close to Jennifer’s sister tells TheYBF.com that her sister Julia, the mother of the missing child, reported her car stolen about a week ago and put out a restraining order on a particular person. We have also learned that Julia’s birthday was yesterday and there were “a lot of things going on”.

UPDATE 5: Here’s some images of William Balfour– the alleged kidnapper and suspect involved in tonight’s murders of Jennifer Hudson’s mother and brother.  William is Jennifer’s brother in law (married to sister Julia who is also pictured below).

William is Julian’s stepfather and is currently on parole for a previous attempted murder.  This is horrific.

Police are urging anyone who has seen the Suburban in question, Julian, or the suspect William to please contact local police immediately.  William could also be driving a teal or green Chrysler Concorde, four-door with temporary tags 332K823.

Scene outside of Jennifer’s mother’s house

UPDATE 6: A friend of Jennifer’s sister Julia tells TheYBF.com that Julia was never at the scene of the crime today.  She did go to work but no one has heard from her since she reported her son Julian missing several hours ago.  Also, the shots fired at Jennifer’s mother’s house were reported around 9a this morning, but police did not answer to the scene until around 3p today.  Police say many gun shots are fired in that neighborhood and they thought them to be just random shots.
