Hudson's sister's 911 call released
MOMENTS after finding her mother's body, the sister of Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Hudson sobs as she pleads for help in a disturbing recording of her emergency call
"Oh my God ... somebody's killed my mother," Julia Hudson says, while a dispatcher tries to calm her down and repeat her address.
A judge in Chicago released the tape this week after a request by the Chicago Tribune , Sun-Times Media and The Associated Press.
The tape was played last week during the trial of William Balfour, who is accused of killing the actress' mother, brother and seven-year-old nephew.
Prosecutors tried to bar the tape's release because of the sensitive nature of the case and because the jury has not yet begun deliberating.
Judge Charles Burns noted in his ruling the jury had been warned not to watch or read reports about the case.
Burns said there's no evidence Balfour's due process rights would be harmed.
