Alex Murdaugh’s risky testimony ultimately brought him down


Convicted former attorney Alex Murdaugh‘s decision to take the stand at his double murder trial was not entirely surprising given his family’s legal legacy stretching back to the early 1900s in coastal South Carolina.

But legal experts say it was ultimately a costly maneuver for the scion of the well-connected Murdaugh clan, which prosecuted crime for three successive generations across the state’s rural low country.

CNN’s Christina Maxouris and Eric Levenson contributed to this report.
