Before Alex Murdaugh’s testimony begins, judge has key rulings | app

WALTERBORO, SC (AP) – Before the start of testimony in South Carolina, attorney Alex Murdaugh murder trialDefense attorneys will ask the judge to make a pair of key rulings this week that could eliminate a massive amount of evidence from the case.

Prosecutors want to present ample evidence of Murdaugh’s misbehavior and the many other crimes he is accused of to show that he killed his wife and son in order to buy time to prevent his other wrongdoings from being uncovered. Defense attorneys don’t want judge to admit evidence, with prosecutors claiming to be trying to smear Murdaugh to bolster a weak case.
