But perhaps today's news will give the Idol and hergrieving relatives a little bit of much-needed peace this season.
Today WilliamBalfour--Jennifer's brother-in-law and the prime suspect in this tragictriple-homicide, who refused to take a lie-detector test when the policeinvestigation began weeks ago--was officially arrested. According Chicago policespokeswoman Monique Bond, he will be formally charged with the killings of DarnellDonerson (Jennifer's mom), Jason Hudson (her brother), and Julian King (hernephew).
Whileeveryone is innocent until proven guilty, of course, I do hope the police have the right man here. I would definitely likeJennifer and her family to have justice--and some peace--in the new year.
