Alex Murdaugh’s paralegal testified Wednesday at his double murder trial about the betrayal she felt when she discovered he lied and manipulated to steal millions of dollars from clients.

Annette Griswold told jurors about Murdaugh's efforts to steal millions from his family law firm and multiple clients. Murdaugh, 54, has been accused of killing his family in an attempt to distract from his financial crimes and buy time and sympathy.

Griswold described her fear of retaliation and told jurors of Murdaugh's "Tasmanian Devil" personality which changed after the killings. She said he seemed to have his "ass on his shoulders" and would shout at staff in anger.
