COLUMBIA, S.C. (WSAV) — Disgraced attorney Alex Murdaugh is being moved to a new facility, the South Carolina Department of Corrections says.

Murdaugh was convicted of killing his wife, Maggie, and their son, Paul, at their
Colleton County hunting property in 2021.

According to officials, Murdaugh’s reception and evaluation process is complete. He has now been moved to the statewide protective custody unit of South Carolina’s maximum security prison.

The specialized unit that Murdaugh will be housed in includes inmates who have validated protective concerns, SCDC says.

The unit currently houses 28 inmates.
