Alex Murdaugh, who was sentenced to life Friday morning, already has a different look as he heads to prison … with a completely shaved head.
The new mug shot was taken just a few hours after he was in a South Carolina courthouse to hear his sentence for murdering his wife and son.
Murdaugh had a full head of hair as the judge gave him 2 life sentences … so they clearly put the razor to him shortly after he was walked out of court in handcuffs. We’re told that’s S.O.P., so it’s not like he had a choice in the matter.
As we reported, a jury convicted him Thursday of 2 counts of murder and 2 counts of possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime. They reached the verdict after less than 3 hours of deliberations.
As you know, Murdaugh’s wife Maggie and 22-year-old son Paul were found dead back in 2021 on the family property in Islandton, SC — they’d been shot with 2 different guns.
Murdaugh was indicted last summer for their murders, but always maintained he was innocent and had an alibi … but that was blown up when prosecutors presented video and audio proving he was on the property moments — within earshot of Maggie and Paul — before the murders.
While on the stand, Murdaugh admitted he lied to authorities, but still maintained he did not kill them. The jury didn’t buy it.
