Judge Rules Murdaugh Jury Can Hear About Financial Problems

(Walterboro, SC)-- The jury in the Alex Murdaugh double-murder trial in South Carolina can hear about his alleged financial problems. 

During the ninth day of the trial yesterday, Judge Clifton Newman ruled the state can present evidence of Murdaugh stealing money from clients and his law partners. 

The prosecution argues Murdaugh's financial issues served as motivation for the killings of his wife and son. 

The defense had argued against the evidence of financial problems being allowed to be presented. 

Murdaugh's attorneys said separate financial crime charges shouldn't be able to be used against him because he hasn't been convicted on those charges.
