For weeks, Maurice Hudson's family had been wondering what happened to the 25-year-old after he disappeared from their lives.

On Saturday, the family learned Hudson had been arrested and charged with murder after briefly leaving the country.
"I had no idea," Hubbard said, when contacted by the Tribune.
Telling his family he was going to London for a vacation, Hudson, who was formerly in the Navy, left Chicago in January, shortly after being questioned about an October homicide that Cook County prosecutors said was ethnically motivated. He was picked up by immigration officials in New Jersey that month after he was forced to leave England.
