Murdaugh is currently serving two consecutive life sentences for the murders of his wife, Maggie, and youngest son Paul.

This motion comes less than two weeks after the South Carolina Court of Appeals allowed Murdaugh to set aside his appeal of his conviction so he could request a new trial.

Attorney Carl B Grant came to WIS to explain what could happen next.
