COLLETON COUNTY, S.C. (WCBD) – Jury selection resumed for the second day Tuesday as Alex Murdaugh stands trial for the brutal June 7, 2021 murders of his wife Margaret and youngest son Paul at their Colleton County property.
Judge Clifton Newman, Murdaugh’s attorneys, and prosecutors weeded through three panels of prospective jurors Monday, sifting out those who were ineligible.
The fourth and final panel is expected Tuesday. Once eligible jurors are pulled from that panel, all of the eligible jurors will be combined to form the jury pool. From that, a group of 18 — 12 jurors and six alternates — will be selected.
