On Monday, the murder trial of former attorney Alex Murdaugh will begin. On Monday, former South Carolina attorney Richard “Alex” Murdaugh will go on trial for the double murder for which he is being sued in over a dozen separate cases and is the subject of various state investigations.
Murdaugh was indicted on two charges of murder in the shooting deaths of his wife, Maggie, and son Paul, in July. Murdaugh came from a family that had run the prosecutor’s office in Hampton County for over 80 years. The disbarred lawyer insists he did not murder his own family.
Following the June 2021 shootings, authorities began looking into two further fatalities linked to Murdaugh and possible criminal conduct stretching back over a decade. Amid his legal problems, he avoided death in a gunshot that official charges tied to an attempted insurance fraud plan gone wrong.
More than a hundred criminal allegations have been filed against him, including drug trafficking, tax evasion, and the theft of more than $8.7 million from clients and other attorneys. Here’s all you need to know about the Murdaugh trial and related cases.

Murdaughs’ Family Discovered Dead at Home
On June 7, 2021, Maggie and Paul were murdered at their home in Colleton County. Colleton County’s medical examiner, Richard Harvey, estimated that the death occurred between 9 and 9:30 pm. At 10:07 pm, Murdaugh called 911 to report the deaths of his family and said he wasn’t there at the time of the murders.
Worldwide media outlets covered the murders. Just days after Murdaugh lost his law license, a grand jury indicted him on two counts of murder and possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent felony. In a court document made in December, the South Carolina Attorney General’s Office said that Murdaugh had murdered his family to garner sympathy and divert the attention of his law firm’s employees from his efforts to conceal possible financial wrongdoing.
