Hudson murder suspect may go free; R. Kelly’s relatives involved in a robbery


William Balfour, Jennifer Hudson’s brother-in-law and a suspect in the Hudson family murders, will appear at a parole violation hearing before the Illinois Prison Review Board on Monday morning in Joliet, IL.   Balfour was convicted for attempted murder in 1999.

Balfour could be released if it is decided there is insufficient evidence that he violated his parole.


Brayel and Brandon Kelly, nephews of R.Kelly, have been arrested and are suspects in an attempted robbery of a Calumet City barbershop.  Brayel,15, was shot in the abdomen and chest and is in intensive care at Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn.

Brayel and Brandon are two of the six children of Carey Kelly, R. Kelly’s brother.
