David OtungaOtunga Stands Besides Wife in Murder Trial

For those of you who were curious why David Otunga has been off WWE TV over the past couple of weeks, here is a good explanation.

Otunga has been next to his wife, Jennifer Hudson, in a trial case of a man who murdered three members of Hudson's family. This past weekend, William Balfour was found guilty in murdering Hudson's mother, brother, and nephew. 31 year old William Balfour stands convicted of a triple murder in which he went into complete rage after jealous overcame him in 2008 regarding Jennifer's sister.

Hudson appeared in court and was present when the verdict was read on Friday. As for Otunga, he was seen at Six Flags in Chicago with Hudson one day after the verdict was read. There is no timetable on the return of Otunga, but it looks like he will settle back into his spot alongside John Laurinaitis and Eve.

Monday Night Raw is Live in Pittsburgh this week, so Otunga could essentially fly to Pittsburgh Sunday night from Chicago which is about a three hour flight, just like the rest of the roster.
