WALTERBORO, Ga. (WSAV) — Closing arguments are underway in the double slaying of disgraced former attorney Alex Murd. Murdo is accused of killing his wife and young son at their Lowcountry hunting lodge in June 2021.
On Wednesday, jurors visited the Murdoch family’s hunting lodge where the murders took place. After the trip, prosecutor Creighton Waters gave a compelling closing argument to the jury, reminding them of Alex’s lies during the investigation and trial.
The defense is scheduled to make its closing arguments Thursday, with attorney Jim Griffin to explain to jurors why Alex Murdo didn’t kill his wife and son. Prosecutors will then present a rebuttal brief.
Shortly after that, Judge Newman will charge the jury, give them their deliberation instructions, and then the jury should begin deliberating this afternoon.
The final performances will continue at 9:30
