William Balfour, Jennifer Hudson's former brother-in-law, was found guilty today on three counts of first-degree murder and four other counts related to the murders of Hudons's mother, brother and nephew four years ago. Hudson had previously revealed to Ebony magazine that she was supposed to be with her mother the day of the slayings, but instead accompanied fiance David Otunga to a wrestling event in Florida.

Otunga, who accompanied Hudson to the courtroom today, has been absent from WWE television since the trial began late last month. He commented on the verdict, writing on his Twitter, "Family. Faith. Strength. #JusticeIsServed"
