King died from two gunshot wounds to the head. Prosecutors presented the photos to show the disturbing result of William Balfour’s alleged actions that left three members of Hudson’s family dead in October 2007.

Balfour is charged with three counts of first-degree murder for killing King, along with Jennifer and Julia Hudson's mother, Darnell Donerson, and brother, Jason Hudson. Balfour is the estranged husband of Julia Hudson.

Also on Monday, a judge ordered the release of 911 calls from October 24, 2007, the day Hudson’s mother and brother were found shot to death in the family’s home. Julian King was found dead a few days later.
