He received two back-to-back lifetime sentences without parole and is currently in custody in a maximum-security prison in South Carolina. His attorneys continue to maintain his innocence and appeared on TODAY on Sept. 6, 2023, after they filed a motion of a retrial and accused the county clerk of jury tampering.

Alex Murdaugh is additionally facing 22 fraud and theft charges related to a number of instances, including the allegation that he cheated his late housekeeper's family out of her estate.
