Alex Murdaugh Is Back In Court For Another Murder Trial: Know More Here

Attorneys for Murdaugh, who was found guilty of the double murder last year after shooting his wife and son to death on their family hunting ranch in June 2021, are anticipated to contend that Colleton County Clerk Beck Hill manipulated the jurors’ verdicts.

During the pre-hearing process, Murdaugh showed up alongside his attorneys Dick Harpootlian and Jim Griffin, dressed in an orange jumpsuit.

Two investigations into Hill’s behaviour during Murdaugh’s murder trial have been launched by the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division. The first looks into claims that Hill used her job as a clerk to profit monetarily from sales of her book about the case, which she later acknowledged contained plagiarized writing. The second investigation focuses on accusations of jury tampering.

According to a press release from co-author Neil Gordon of “Behind the Doors of Justice,” Hill included passages from a BBC piece in her work. Since then, book sales have stopped.

Hill is anticipated to testify Tuesday on behalf of the prosecution. Prosecutor Creighton Waters of South Carolina and retired Judge Clifton Newman, who oversaw the Murdaugh case, are anticipated to appear for the defence.
