CHICAGO (AP) — A full jury and six alternates have been selected at the trial of a man accused of killing three members of Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson’s family.

The last four panelists were chosen Tuesday, the second day of one-by-one questioning of would-be jurors. Fourteen were picked Monday.

Those who will sit in the jury box when testimony begins April 23 include a junior high school teacher and an unemployed bank teller who lives three blocks from court.

Some of the jurors have had friends and relatives who were victims of violent crimes. At least two had close relatives who were murdered.

Several people who said they were fans of Hudson and couldn’t set aside their sympathy were dismissed.

William Balfour is charged with killing Hudson’s mother, brother and nephew in 2008.
