Murdaugh sentenced to life in prison over murder of wife, son
A judge sentenced South Carolina attorney Alex Murdaugh to life without parole on Friday, a day after he was convicted of murder in the shooting deaths of his wife and son.
The Colleton County jury deliberated for less than three hours Thursday before finding Murdaugh guilty of killing his 22-year-old son, Paul, with a shotgun and his 52-year-old wife, Maggie, with a rifle on June 7, 2021.
Murdaugh soon will be taken to a state prison where he will be held in the highest security.
More to come.
