The murder trial against William Balfour begins Monday, but people wanting to watch the trial in person have to register today.

Those who want to sit in the courtroom can register Friday between 3-5 p.m. Friday.

For every day of the trial, court watchers must sign up in person in the lobby of the criminal courthouse the day before they want to be in court.

Balfour is accused of murdering three members of Jennifer Hudson's family.
