Co-hosts Mandy Matney, Liz Farrell and Eric Bland — unpack the seven hours in hearings that were held last week for South Carolina’s “Unholy Trinity” Alex Murdaugh, Cory Fleming and Russell Laffitte. Judge Clifton Newman and S.C. Prosecutor Creighton Waters show the federal government that they’re not playing games. Plus will Alex go through with his plan to plead guilty in front of U.S. District Court Judge Richard Gergel now that he has a state trial date?

Cory Fleming was sentenced to 10 years for the Satterfield heist and 10 years for what he did to Pamela Pinckney. He’ll ultimately serve less than 14 years for everything but this is still so much more than anyone thought he’d get … including Cory and his team. Alex Murdaugh was assigned his state court trial date, which interferes with his strategy of getting into federal prison. And the South Carolina Justice System made it CLEAR they weren’t playing the federal government’s games.

Needless to say, Liz, Eric and Mandy could NOT WAIT to record this week’s episode because of how much there was to talk about.
