Alex Murdaugh has been found guilty on all counts in the murders of his wife and son.

The jurors told the clerk of court they had a verdict at 6:41 p.m.

The verdict was read shortly after 7 p.m., after about three hours of deliberations.

Sentencing has been scheduled for 9:30 a.m. Friday. Murdaugh, 54, faces 30 years to life in prison without parole.

The disbarred South Carolina attorney was charged with the murders of his wife and son.

Murdaugh’s 52-year-old wife was shot four or five times with a rifle and their 22-year-old son was shot twice with a shotgun at the kennels near at their rural Colleton County home on June 7, 2021.
