Judge releases call tape in Hudson family slayings

A judge in Chicago has released the tape of the emergency call Jennifer Hudson's sister made after finding their mother's body.
William Balfour is accused of killing the Oscar-winning actress' mother, brother and 7-year-old nephew. The judge hearing Balfour's case agreed Monday to release the recording of Julia Hudson's call at the request of several media outlets.
On the tape, Julia Hudson begs a dispatcher for help after finding her mother shot dead inside the family's home.
Balfour has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder charges in the October 2008 killings. The tape already has been played for jurors at his trial.
