South Carolina attorney Alex Murdaugh may soon face murder charges in the death of his wife and son.
According to FITS News, South Carolina’s State Law Enforcement Division will present its case to a Grand Jury on Thursday. Murdaugh is already facing dozens of charges concerning financial fraud.
On June 7, 2021, Maggie and Paul were found fatally shot at their family’s 1,770-acre lodge in Colleton County. Alex Murdaugh claims that he was visiting his mother in Varnville, 20 minutes from where his wife and son were killed.
Months after the double homicide, Murdaugh was arrested for allegedly stealing $4.3 million from the estate of Gloria Satterfield. The Murdaughs’ former housekeeper suffered a fatal fall at their Murdaughs’ home on his property in February 2018.
Alex Murdaugh is accused of stealing insurance payouts that were intended for Satterfield’s family. Murdaugh has currently been charged with 74 counts, accused of stealing money from a slew of clients and his former law firm. Murdaugh has also been disbarred.
