Jurors in Alex Murdaugh’s double murder trial in South Carolina are hearing evidence about what crime scene technicians discovered when they tested a rain jacket found three months after his wife and son were killed in 2021. A state agent testified Tuesday gunshot residue was found inside the jacket, likely after someone shot a gun wearing it inside out or wrapped it around a recently fired weapon. Defense attorneys had asked the judge in the case to prevent further testimony about the raincoat after the caretaker for Murdaugh’s ailing mother testified that she she saw him bring a “blue something, looked like a tarp” into his mother’s home nine days after the killings.

Richard Cash says “there obviously seems to be some sort of race going on here as to who can get their bill through a committee, through the body, first to the finish line.”

Authorities say a man selling a French bulldog was fatally shot in the parking lot of a South Carolina fast food restaurant, where he had arranged to meet the buyer. Lee County Sheriff Daniel Simon says Lonnie Alford Ray sold the dog online and went to a parking lot near Interstate 20 in Bishopville to meet the buyer on Monday night. Instead, the sheriff says Ray was met by several men, who grabbed the dog’s leash and fired several shots. Ray died a short time later. No arrests have been made. French bulldogs are considered a valuable breed and can sell for thousands of dollars.
