The trial of Alex Murdaugh for murdering his wife and youngest son captured international attention. Reporters from around the globe flocked to tiny Colleton County, South Carolina, to see if a jury would convict the scion of a prominent Southern legal dynasty of slaughtering his own flesh and blood. This day-by-day look at the witnesses and evidence presented takes you through the trial as it occurred, analyzing the pieces of the puzzle put together by the prosecution. Each day's report ends with a summary of key points and a guilty-meter showing which side moved the needle, if any. Written from the perspective of a juror, this account only considers information presented to the jury. Go through the evidence, read what the witnesses said and saw, and make your own determination.
