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 he had found his wife, Margaret, and youngest son, Paul, shot dead at their home in Islandton.
In their statement, Murdaugh’s law firm also addressed South Carolina Law Enforcement Division’s (SLED) criminal investigation into the February 2018 death of Gloria Satterfield, a housekeeper for the Murdaugh family, and the handling of her estate.
The firm said they did not represent Murdaugh in that case, but “have read the media reports about the lawsuit and settlement resulting from the death of Gloria Satterfield. If these reports are accurate, we are stunned at what occurred.”
