BREAKING: Judge denies Murdaugh bond, wants psychiatric evaluation
COLUMBIA, SC Local Charlotte News – A judge has denied bond for Alex Murdaugh and wants a psychiatric evaluation conducted while he remains jailed, the court decided Tuesday.
Lawyers for the prominent South Carolina attorney asked a judge to grant bond for their client, who has spent five nights in jail following his second arrest in about a month.
Murdaugh, whose wife and son were shot to death months ago in a killing that is still unresolved, stole $3.4 million of insurance money that was meant for the sons of his housekeeper, who died after falling in his home, according to sworn statements by the State Law Enforcement Division.
