William Balfour, the man charged with murdering Jennifer Hudson‘s family members, may have had one of the oldest motives in the book for killing.

Just hours after his bail was denied on Wednesday, prosecutors say Balfour, 27, may have been plain jealous that his estranged wife Julia (Hudson’s sister) was seeing another man. He reportedly threatened to "harm" her family if she continued to see a new man and confronted them, prosecutors say, on the day of the murders.

TMZ is reporting that Balfour was just brought to Cook County Jail, booked and is now being housed in the general population.
