WALTERBORO, S.C.- Jury selection continued for a second day Tuesday, along with motion hearings, in the double murder trial of disbarred attorney Alex Murdaugh.
He’s charged with murder in the June 2021 killings of his wife, Maggie, and youngest son, Paul, who were found shot to death near dog kennels at the family’s Colleton County hunting property.
The fourth and final panel of potential jurors was asked a series of qualifying questions to determine whether they could maintain impartial judgment, including where they work, relationships with the family or potential witnesses and criminal history.
