WALTERBORO, S.C. () — All eyes remain on Walterboro as the double murder trial of embattled former attorney Alex Murdaugh continues into the second week. Murdaugh is accused of murdering his wife and son, Maggie and Paul, at their Colleton County property in June 2021.
During the first week of the trial, nine witnesses took the stand for testimony and an explosive new video of the second interview of Murdaugh on the night of the murders was introduced.
This week, the jury is expected to find out more about a Snapchat video could place Alex and Paul at the scene before the killings. Cell phone data may show where everyone was that night and it could affect Alex’s alibi in the case. More witnesses are also expected to testify.
The trial resumes at 9:30 a.m. Monday morning.
