One week after Alex Murdaugh was sentenced to life for killing his wife and son, Murdaugh Murders Podcast co-hosts Mandy Matney and Liz Farrell — and everyone’s favorite attorney Eric Bland — take a look at the questions surrounding a juror’s connections to a witness, the problems with the judicial selection process in South Carolina and the need for reform and Russell Laffitte’s overdue bills.

It’s been over a week since Alex Murdaugh was sentenced to two consecutive life terms for killing his wife and son, and there hasn’t been a break in the news.
On Monday, federal Judge Richard Gergel denied Russell Laffitte’s motion for a new trial. Now his case moves to the appeals phase, which Russell will go through without the help of his original attorneys Bart Daniel and Matt Austin because on Thursday Bart and Matt filed a motion to dump Russell. Apparently Alex’s co-conspirator hasn’t paid the balance of his legal bill at Nelson Mullins.
According to our amazing co-host Eric Bland, Russell will be sentenced in May or June of this year and, after reading Judge Gergel’s scathing order Monday, we’re all expecting he’ll receive a significant punishment.

We have a really interesting show for you today. We talked about the unwarranted criticism surrounding James the Juror and his connection to the Colleton County Sheriff’s Office, Dick Harpootlian’s Good Ole Boy fragility and the need for judicial reform in this state.
