"William Balfour, a suspect in the murders of three members of Jennifer Hudson's family, has been held for two weeks awaiting a hearing on whether a parole violation will keep him behind bars," David Heinzmann reports in the Tribune.

The hearing before the Illinois Prisoner Review Board is scheduled to be held Monday morning at Stateville Correctional Center, prison officials said. Balfour has not been charged with a crime, but police have developed several pieces of information tying him to the crime scene at the Hudson family South Side home on Oct. 24., the day that the Oscar-winning actress's mother, Darnell Donerson, and brother, Jason Hudson, were killed.

Balfour could be realeased immediately after the hearing if the board finds that he did not violate the terms of his parole for a 1999 attempted murder conviction.

The Hudson family held a private funeral service for all three relatives Monday.
