After weeks of testimony in the high profile case of Alex Murdaugh, the jury took to the deliberation room late Thursday. Just three hours later, they had reached a verdict.
The jury found Alex Murdaugh guilty of murdering his wife and son.
The disgraced South Carolina attorney was convicted on all four counts that he was facing — two counts of murder and two counts of possession of a weapon in the commission of a violent crime.
Alex Murdaugh’s legal team says it will not be commenting prior to the sentencing hearing, which will take place Friday at 9:30 a.m. ET.
“The expectation for that press conference is for it to occur about an hour after the completion of the sentencing hearing but more specifics will be provided tomorrow morning,” Murdaugh’s legal team said in an email.
