Alex Murdaugh’s attorney argues ‘jaw-dropping’ juror revelations warrant new trial

The defense team for convicted double murderer Alex Murdaugh is demanding a new trial amid allegations of jury tampering by the court clerk in South Carolina.

An explosive motion filed last week alleges Colleton County Clerk Rebecca “Becky” Hill pressured jurors to reach a verdict quickly so she could secure a book deal. 

Murdaugh defense attorney Jim Griffin joined “Sunday Night in America” host Trey Gowdy to discuss jurors’ sworn affidavits claiming that Hill made inappropriate comments, suggesting bias against the defense.

Murdaugh has insisted he is innocent and is appealing the verdict.
