What to know about the Alex Murdaugh murder trial
In 2018, the family’s long-time housekeeper, Gloria Satterfield, died after an apparent accident at their home. Mr Murdaugh encouraged her adult children to file a wrongful death lawsuit. Mr Murdaugh’s insurance company paid out to the tune of $4.3m, but the Satterfields did not receive a dime. Mr Murdaugh later admitted he had kept it all.
