Crime Stories with Nancy Grace: Alex Murdaugh’s Damning Roadside ‘Shooting-For-Hire’ to be Heard by Jury

Jurors learned today that Paul and Maggie Murdaugh were shot at close range. Dr. Kenneth Kinsey testified about the graphic wounds the pair sustained.  Kensey said the first shot didn’t kill Paul.

In fact, Paul stood for a moment and began moving toward his killer, before he was hit with the second fatal shot. Kensey told jurors that the blood pattern proved this.

Judge Clifton Newman also reversed his decision about allowing testimony on Murdaugh’s alleged botched suicide plot. Judge Clifton Newman initially announced he would prohibit jurors from hearing evidence about Alex’s alleged botched attempt, but will now allow it after the defense opened the door with questions about Murdaugh’s drug abuse and drug contacts.
