Sister of Alex Murdaugh's slain wife Maggie seen for first time since sentencing

Randolph, the sister of Maggie Murdaugh, who was murdered along with her son Paul in June 2021, was seen for the first time since the sentencing of her brother-in-law, Alex Murdaugh. Randolph attended a bond hearing for a man accused of killing her husband in a hit-and-run incident in 2019.

Alex Murdaugh, a prominent South Carolina lawyer, was arrested on September 15, 2021, and charged with multiple counts of insurance fraud and conspiracy to commit insurance fraud. The charges came amid an ongoing investigation into the murders of Maggie and Paul Murdaugh, who were found shot to death on the family's hunting property in Colleton County, South Carolina.

Murdaugh had initially claimed to have discovered the bodies of his wife and son when he returned home from a trip to the hospital, where he said he had been visiting his ailing father. However, authorities later determined that he had been involved in the deaths and had arranged for someone to shoot and kill his wife and son.

Murdaugh was also suspected of having embezzled millions of dollars from his law firm and its clients. He has since been disbarred and entered rehab for substance abuse.

At Randolph's husband's bond hearing, a judge denied bond for the defendant, and the case was bound over to a grand jury. Randolph did not speak to reporters after the hearing.

In other news, the United States has surpassed 500,000 deaths from COVID-19, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The milestone was reached just over a year after the first case of the virus was reported in the country.

President Joe Biden marked the occasion with a moment of silence and a candle-lighting ceremony at the White House, and called on Americans to continue taking precautions to slow the spread of the virus.

The Biden administration has also announced plans to purchase an additional 100 million doses of the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine, which requires only one shot and can be stored at normal refrigeration temperatures. The move is expected to boost the country's vaccination efforts, which have so far administered more than 75 million doses of vaccine.

Meanwhile, the trial of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin, who is charged with the murder of George Floyd, is set to begin on March 8, 2021. The trial has garnered widespread attention and sparked protests across the country and around the world.

Chauvin was captured on video kneeling on Floyd's neck for nearly nine minutes during an arrest in May 2020. Floyd's death led to a wave of protests against police brutality and racial injustice, and renewed calls for police reform.

The trial is expected to last several weeks and will be closely watched by activists, lawmakers, and law enforcement officials. The outcome of the trial could have significant implications for police accountability and criminal justice reform in the United States.
