Alex Murdaugh has been arrested on his release from rehab for allegedly transferring the $4.3 million settlement intended for the sons of his housekeeper who died during a mysterious “trip and fall” at his home in 20128.
Murdaugh, who was charged last month with a botched hitman and is involved in the double murder of his wife and son, was taken into custody Thursday morning by officers from the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division (SLED) and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.
He faces two felony counts of obtaining property through false pretenses.
The legal scion was locked up in a rehab facility in Orlando, Florida, after he posted bail last month to deal with the 20-year-old opioid addiction he said left him in financial ruin.
Alex Murdaugh formed a shell company called Forge to transfer $3.5 million of the $4.3 million settlement money intended for his housekeeper who was mysteriously murdered in his home, according to new legal documents. Murdaugh in court last month
