The trial of Alex Murdaugh, accused of murdering his wife and her lover, has taken an unexpected turn. The judge overseeing the case has allowed the jury to visit the scene of the double murders, which took place two years ago in a small town in North Carolina.
The defense team for Murdaugh, led by attorney Robert White, rested their case Monday after Murdaugh made a shocking admission on the stand.
Murdaugh, who has pleaded not guilty, admitted to killing his wife and her lover, but claims it was in self-defense.
The jury was barred from hearing any evidence related to infidelity, including whether or not Murdaugh had cheated on his late wife, Maggie.
Meanwhile, a newly unearthed commercial ad video featuring Murdaugh has raised questions about his ethical conduct. The video allegedly exploits a former disabled client, and has sparked outrage among the public.
The trial of Alex Murdaugh is being livestreamed by News 19 WLTX, and is expected to conclude soon. Viewers can follow all the latest developments on USNN.
