Attorney: Alex Murdaugh considered a person of interest in the death of his wife and son

Alex Murdaugh is considered a person of interest in the death of his wife and son, according to his attorney. Maggie and Paul Murdaugh were shot and killed in June at the family’s estate in Colleton County. This comes as Murdaugh is under arrest for the second time in a month. He’s now accused of stealing settlement money from the family of his longtime housekeeper who died in 2018. At the time, Murdaugh said she died after tripping over the family dog at his home.

“He has indicated clearly that he is going to try to right every wrong – financial wrong – and others that he may have committed. Look, he’s reconciled to the fact he’s going to prison. He understands that. He’s a lawyer,” Murdaugh attorney Dick Harpootlian said Friday on “ Good Morning America.”
