Back in May Balfour was found guilty on three counts of first-degree murder for shooting and killing Hudson's mother Darnell, her brother Jason and her nephew Julian. Balfour is the estranged husband of the Oscar winner's sister Julia.

"Cook County Circuit Judge Charles Burns has given Balfour three life sentences as well as 120 years for other charges (including home invasion, residential burglary, aggravated kidnapping and possession of a stolen vehicle)," reads the court statement.

During the trial in April, Hudson, testified that she warned Julia about marrying Balfour, telling the courtroom, "I told her over and over again to not marry him. We did not like how he treated her."
