The disgraced South Carolina lawyer was collared following his release from a drug rehab center in Orlando. He got here Saturday at the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center in Richland, South Carolina, near Columbia, after waiving an extradition hearing in Florida, according to reports.

Murdaugh’s lawyer, Dick Harpootlian, had actually stated Friday that Murdaugh planned to go back to South Carolina willingly, after acknowledging that he will likely deal with jail time.

According to warrants revealed Saturday, Murdaugh was charged with 2 counts of acquiring residential or commercial property by incorrect pretenses in connection with the estate of Gloria Satterfield, a previous maid who operated at Murdaugh’s house up until her death in 2018, Greenville, South Carolina-based FOX Carolina reported.


Satterfield fell at the house, striking her head, on Feb. 2, 2018, and after that passed away 24 days later on, the station reported.

The warrants even more declare that Murdaugh opened a savings account with the name “Forge” and advised Fleming to send out cash, in the quantity of $403,000, to that account rather of to Satterfield’s household, the report stated.

The supposed actions by Murdaugh and Fleming rejected Satterfield’s survivors of cash that was owed to them, the warrants state, according to FOX Carolina.
