Chances are, you have heard of Alex Murdaugh but in case you haven’t, he is the former attorney accused of killing his wife and son in June 2021.

Today, Alex Murdaugh has taken the stand in his own defense and has pleaded not guilty to two counts of murder and two weapons charges in the killings of his wife Margaret “Maggie” Murdaugh and son Paul Murdaugh at the family’s estate in Islandton, South Carolina.

In his first question, his lawyer, Jim Griffin, asked:

“Mr. Murdaugh, on June 7 2021, did you take this gun or any gun like it and shoot your son Paul in the chest” at his property?

Murdaugh replied:

“No, I did not.”

His lawyer then asked:

“Did you take this gun or any gun like it and blow your son’s brains out on June 7 or any day, any time?”

Murdaugh responded:

“No, I did not.”

When the lawyer asked if Murdaugh had killed his wife Margaret “Maggie” Murdaugh, Murdaugh replied:

“I didn’t shoot my wife or my son anytime ever.”

But then Alex Murdaugh also admitted today that he did in fact lie to authorities about being at the Kennels the night of his wife and son’s murders.

There is actual video evidence that was found that proved he was there.

When he was questioned about lying regarding his whereabouts that night, here is how he responded:

“Did you lie to SLED Agent Owen and Deputy Laura Rutland on the night of June 7 and told them that you stayed at the house after dinner?” defense attorney Jim Griffin asked him.

“I did lie to them,” he said.

“Did you lie to Agent Owen and Agent Croft on the follow-up interview on June 10, that the last time that you saw Maggie and Paul was at dinner?” Griffin asked.

“I did lie to them,” he said.

“And then, in the interview of August 11, did you tell Agent Owen and Agent Croft, did you lie to them by telling them that you were not down at the kennels on that night?” Griffin asked.

“Yes,” he responded.

Wow just wow – I mean, there are so many things about his story that don’t make sense or add up.

People truly aren’t buying his lies and are convinced he murdered his wife and son.
