The defense for the man accused of killing relatives of Jennifer Hudson told jurors Wednesday that prosecutors failed to prove their case, while a prosecutor countered that they had "a tsunami of evidence" linking him to the crime.
The defense for the man accused of killing relatives of Jennifer Hudson told jurors Wednesday that prosecutors failed to prove their case, while a prosecutor countered that they had "overwhelming circumstantial evidence" linking him to the crime.
Jurors in the case of the man accused of killing relatives of Jennifer Hudson began deliberations late Wednesday afternoon after prosecutors trying to counter defense claims of a weak case insisted that "a tsunami of evidence" linked him to the crime.
Jurors deliberated late into the night Wednesday without reaching a verdict after sitting through sometimes heated and embittered closing arguments at the Chicago trial of the man accused of slaying Oscar-winner Jennifer Hudson's mother, brother and 7-year-old nephew.
Chicago prosecutors created a buzz by calling Oscar-winner Jennifer Hudson as their first witness during the trial of the man accused of killing her mother, brother and nephew. But the hard part starts Tuesday, when they'll have to get down to the nitty-gritty of their case.
A judge on Thursday ordered a man charged in the 2008 Chicago slayings of Jennifer Hudson's mother and two other family members to stand trial in April, despite the objections of his attorney, who said she was not ready.
Amy Thompson, a deputy public defender, said despite working 12 to 14 hours a day on the case, she could not answer that she was ready for trial, as prosecutors had done.
"We're not prepared for trial at this time," she said.
