Bombshells in the courtroom today as the judge in Alex Murdaugh’s double murder trial rules that the state may present evidence of the now-disbarred South Carolina attorney’s alleged financial crimes.
The prosecution contends that the fact that these crimes were about to be revealed provided Murdaugh with a motive for murder.
Also heard in court today was testimony surrounding the “blue tarp” found on the second floor of Alex Murdaugh’s mother’s home. That blue tarp, under testing, showed gun residue.
According to Shelly Smith, a caregiver for Murdaugh’s mother, Alex came by one week after the murders carrying a balled-up blue tarp. It appeared to have something inside it.
