The mother of a 19-year-old found dead in 2015 said the grand jury indictment of former Lowcountry attorney Alex Murdaugh in the killings of his own wife and son gives her hope for justice for her son’s case.

After an hour and a half of testimony where the defense and prosecution called multiple people, State Grand Jury Presiding Judge Alison Renee Lee said she would issue a written order on a decision to reduce bond for Alex Murdaugh.
Attorneys for Alex Murdaugh want a judge to stop a lawyer suing him from publicly speaking about the massive legal entanglement Murdaugh finds himself in and recommend a panel that disciplines attorneys look into the matter.
Lawyers representing the family of Alex Murdaugh’s late housekeeper Gloria Satterfield announced on Wednesday afternoon that a “second and final” settlement was reached between her family and attorney Cory Fleming.
The family’s lawsuit says Murdaugh is trying to hide millions of dollars they could possibly collect in their lawsuit, and he could shift money between unknown accounts and potentially sell off property and a boat after he turned all his affairs over to his surviving son, Buster Murdaugh.
