Alex Murdaugh on Thursday filed a notice to appeal his convictions in the killings of his wife and adult son and the life sentence handed down by a judge.

Murdaugh, 54, was convicted by a jury last week of two counts of murder in the fatal shootings of Margaret, 52, and their youngest son, Paul, 22, in June 2021.

A jury convicted Murdaugh on March 2 after around three hours of deliberations.
