Thomas Darnell, SLED fingerprint examiner, takes the stand.
Of note, members of Murdaugh family, including Buster and John Marvin, arrive as testimony before jury begins. @wis10
Other testimony included hearing from Gloria Satterfield’s son. Satterfield died in 2018 after she fell at the Moselle property Murdaugh owned. Murdaugh assured the family they would receive insurance money in the death. However, when the claim was settled Murdaugh allegedly never told the family about the settlement and pocketed the money.
