“I didn’t shoot my wife or my son any time, ever,” he said under questioning by his attorney. “I would never intentionally do anything to hurt either one of them. Ever. Ever.”

Murdaugh admitted his voice could be heard on a cellphone video taken at the kennels where Maggie and Paul were killed about five minutes before the shootings, and that he repeatedly lied to South Carolina Law Enforcement Division investigators about that last time he saw his wife and son, who he referred to by nicknames “Mags” and “Pau-Pau” on the stand.
