Friends and relativMemorial set for slain kin of Jennifer Hudsones of Jennifer Hudson are expected at her childhood church in Chicago for an evening memorial service to mourn the Oscar-winning actress' slain mother, brother, and nephew. The memorial for Darnell Donerson, Jason Hudson, and Julian King is set for late afternoon Sunday at Pleasant Gift Memorial Baptist Church.

A publicist says Jennifer Hudson and her sister, Julia Hudson, won't attend the service.

The three victims were shot late last month.

No one has been charged in the killings. However, authorities have called Julia Hudson's estranged husband, 27-year-old William Balfour, a "person of interest." Balfour is in custody on a parole violation.
