Alex Murdaugh trial: Power, privilege, murder and the downfall of a dynasty

Alex Murdaugh’s trial for the killing of his wife and son has uncovered fraud, drug abuse and a suicide plot. …

But since the brutal killings of his wife, Maggie, and son, Paul, in June 2021, a series of bizarre and tragic events helped bring about Mr Murdaugh’s spectacular fall from grace. The 54-year-old has denied the murders, which prosecutors allege were a desperate diversion from decades of financial wrongdoing. But on the stand, he admitted to a number of other crimes, including embezzlement, fraud and a faked assassination attempt.
