During the hearing for Alex Murdaugh’s murder charge, the State and his defense team agreed on a gag order for all motions filed by either side. The Judge decided to reject their proposal.

John also discusses whether he believes Murdaugh will face the death penalty, what the Slayer Statute is, and if Maggie did hire a divorce attorney, does that attorney have to come forward.
