South Carolina lawyer Alex Murdaugh is on trial for the murder of his wife and son, and the theft of millions from vulnerable clients. On the stand, Murdaugh admitted to lying to investigators, but denied any guilt in the deaths of his family.
Murdaugh’s testimony was full of surprises, including his admission that he was “paranoid” and his claims that he “didn’t shoot” his wife or son. He also made shocking accusations against investigators, alleging that his family had been killed by a “third party”.
The prosecution grilled Murdaugh over the theft of millions from vulnerable clients, and the defense attempted to paint him as a victim of circumstance. Throughout the cross-examination, Murdaugh became increasingly emotional, eventually breaking down in tears.
The trial is ongoing, and it remains to be seen whether Murdaugh will be found guilty or acquitted. The public is eagerly awaiting the verdict, and the full coverage of the trial can be found on USNN.
