Nine Chosen In Hudson Family Murder Trial
" CHICAGO (AP) — Nine people have been chosen so far to sit on the jury for the Chicago trial of the man accused of killing Jennifer Hudson’s mother, brother and nephew.

Judge Charles Burns and attorneys questioned 24 people one by one for four straight hours Monday before taking a break.

A total of 12 jurors and six alternates will be selected.

Among those already accepted as jurors was a physical therapist who said she watched Hudson on “American Idol” in 2004, a junior high school teacher and a man who works as an attendant at a country club.

Another 25 prospective jurors were to be questioned later in the day in the judge’s chambers.

The judge has said he’d like a full jury in place by Wednesday. Testimony begins April 23.
