Alex Murdo: Who is the disgraced lawyer and why is he being sued?
Alex MurdoThe five shocking words of a man after killing his wife and son were revealed at the Colton County Courthouse in Walterboro. South Carolinaon Monday.
Jurors heard testimony about Mr. Murdo’s second interview with law enforcement on June 10, 2021 — three days after he was accused of shooting Maggie, 52, and Paul, 22, at the family’s Islandton mansion on 7 June 2021
In the interview, SLED Special Agent Jeff Croft testified that Mr. Murdough told him, “I did him so bad.”
As prosecutors tried to suggest the 54-year-old legal scion had slipped up during the interview, Mr Murdo was seen shaking his head and appearing to say “that’s not what I said” in court.
The audio of the interview has also raised doubts, with some believing he was actually saying: “They did him so badly.”
Agent Croft is expected to be cross-examined by Mr Murdo’s lawyers when the trial resumes on Tuesday morning.
The trial is just one of Mr. Murdo’s problems in a saga spanning a failed assassination plot, multimillion-dollar fraud schemes and unexplained deaths.
