CHICAGO (AP) - The trial of the man charged with murdering three of Jennifer Hudson's family members has resumed the Oscar-winner listening to a police officer's painful description of finding her dead family members.

Hudson sat next to her fiance Tuesday as she did after testifying Monday, the trial's first day. Prosecutors shifted their focus to presenting crime scene evidence in the case against her former brother-in-law, William Balfour.

Hudson hung her head and shut her eyes while the officer described finding her brother dead in his bed of a gunshot wound to the head. His sheets were pulled up as if he'd been sleeping.

Balfour was estranged from his wife, Hudson's sister, at the time of the killings. He has pleaded not guilty to murdering Hudson's mother, brother and 7-year-old nephew.
