Lawyer Quits Hudson Case

William Balfour, suspect in custody for the triple slaying of Jennifer Hudson's mother, brother and Nephew has lost his public defender, lawyer Joshua Kutnick.

According to the Chicago Sun-Times, Kutnick says he believes "Balfour is innocent but cannot financially support such a high-profile case alone."

Balfour has pleaded not guilty to three counts of first-degree murder and one count of home invasion. Kutnick said there is no forensic evidence linking his former client to the killings.

Balfour is expected to be appointed a new public defender sometime this afternoon.
