Body of Hudson nephew identified

Police have identified the body of a child found in a car in Chicago as the missing seven-year-old nephew of actress Jennifer Hudson.

Julian King had not been seen since Hudson's mother and brother were found shot dead in their Chicago home.

Police confirmed his identity on Monday hours after finding the body in a white car parked in the city's west side.

Jennifer Hudson identified it as her nephew. Police did not say how or when he died, and no-one has been charged.
