Murder charges were filed against South Carolina attorney Alex Murdaugh in the deaths of his wife and son. Maggie and Paul Murdaugh 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 away.
A bond hearing is slated for Wednesday, where Murdaugh will find out if he will be granted bond or not. Also still to be announced is whether or not the state will be seeking the death penalty in this case.
As it stands now, the newly released indictment does not say if prosecutors believe that Murdaugh pulled the triggers himself, but law enforcement sources say that high-velocity splatter on Alex Murdaugh’s clothing places him at the murder scene.
