He lied and he stole from us,” said Peters, Murdaugh, Parker, Eltzroth & Detrick. said in a statement on their website. They said no member of the firm was aware of “Alex’s plan” or his drug abuse, which his lawyer acknowledged in an interview earlier this month on NBC’s “Today.”

Murdaugh has since been charged with insurance fraud, conspiracy to commit insurance fraud and filing a false police report.

The arrest comes about three months after Murdaugh called police to report that he had found his wife, Margaret, and the youngest son, Paul, shot dead in their home in Islandton.

In their statement, Murdaugh’s law firm also addressed the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division’s (SLED) criminal investigation into the death of Gloria Satterfield, a housekeeper for the Murdaugh family in February 2018, and the handling of her estate.

Satterfield died in 2018 in what was described as a “walking and falling accident” at the Murdaugh home, CNN has previously reported.
