Jury selection continues Alex Murdaugh murder trial with opening statements expected later in the day. Over the past two days, motions have been filed by the defense asking the judge to not allow some evidence be presented, including ballistics and some of the state's expert witness testimony. The judge ruled that a ballistics expert,  a SLED agent, was credible.   

Another point of contention, blood spatter evidence. The defense says the white t-shirt worn by Murdaugh, which the state says has blood spatter on it, has been damaged by testing so that defense experts cannot conduct their own tests.  Both prosecutors and the defense agreed not to bring up the blood spatter evidence during opening arguments.
