Jurors in Alex Murdaugh’s murder trial finally heard from the CFO of the law firm where Murdaugh was a partner.
Jeanne Seckinger told the jury that she had a tense meeting with the lawyer over settlement money that the law firm had collected, which was missing. That total amount was more than $2.8 million. In less than 12 hours, Murdaugh’s wife and son were fatally shot.
Also on the stand today, South Carolina Law Enforcement Division (SLED) Forensic scientist Megan Fletcher discussed the gunshot residue she found on Alex Murdaugh’s blue, tarp-like raincoat.
The raincoat was found on the third of his mother’s home about a week after the murders. Residue was found on the outside and inside of the jacket.
Testimony was also given on tests run on Murdaugh’s shoes.
