A suspect in the murders of actress Jennifer Hudson's mother, brother and 7-year-old nephew will remain in prison as police proceed with their investigation of the killings.
After a brief hearing this morning, the Illinois Prisoner Review Board decided there was sufficient reason to believe William Balfour had violated his parole in another matter ‹ including being where drugs were sold.
Board chairman Jorge Montes also said a witness reported seeing Balfour with a gun that matches the description of the .45-caliber weapon used to kill Hudson's relatives.
Another hearing was set for Dec. 3.
No one has been charged in the shootings, but authorities have called Balfour, 27, a "person of interest."
He was out on parole for a 1999 attempted murder conviction at the time of the shootings. Balfour is the estranged husband of Hudson's sister, Julia.
Watch a report on the ruling:
The Hudson family held a private funeral service for all three relatives last week.
