CHICAGO (AP) — Testimony continues in the trial in Chicago of a man accused of killing three relatives of Oscar-winning singer Jennifer Hudson.

Jurors heard Thursday from Robbin Myers, who testified William Balfour came to a birthday party at his home in August 2008 and "went on a rant." Myers testified that during their conversation, Balfour threatened to kill the Hudson family "at least 10 times."

An ex-girlfriend of Balfour’s also testified Thursday.

Chicago resident Diana Grant said she met Balfour through friends and began dating him in 2007.

Prosecutors contend three hours after he left Grant’s apartment on Oct. 24, 2008, Balfour went inside the Hudson family house on Chicago’s South Side and shot Hudson’s mother and brother. Investigators allege he then took 7-year-old Julian King from the home and killed him.
