CHICAGO (AP) -- Members of the Chicago Police Department have offered more testimony at the trial of the man accused of killing members of actress Jennifer's Hudson family.
Officer Terrence Fowler testified Monday that he was searching the blocks around the crime scene when he found a gun. Fowler was one of dozens of Chicago Police Academy recruits asked to help after the bodies of Hudson's mother, brother and later, nephew, were found. Fowler says he swept his baton through high weeds when he hear a clink and found the gun.
Chicago police detectives also testified about finding the body of Hudson's 7-year-old nephew in a white SUV about a block north of where Fowler found the weapon.
William Balfour has pleaded not guilty in the 2008 killings.
