The March 3 “Dateline NBC” episode airs at 9PM ET/8PM CT. Features the latest in the trial of Alex Murdaugh, accused of murdering his wife Maggie and son Paul, as insiders close to the family speak out for the first time to NBC News’ Craig Melvin.
During the two-hour special, Chris Wilson tells Melvin in an exclusive interview that it was “hard” to testify against his former longtime friend Alex at the trial regarding allegations Alex misdirected funds from a previous case they had worked on together. Wilson explained, “There’s a relationship there that I thought was based on trust and respect, and all of those things that when you find out it’s not, it’s hard to relive that, hard to talk about it.”
Chris’ wife, Dana, also sits down with Melvin and opens up for the first time about the murder of her close friend Maggie. She reveals what it was like finding out about the allegations that Alex had stolen money, saying: “I remember Chris telling me, and I’m shaking my head, like – there’s no way. There’s no way. He made good money. How? Why? What? No, that’s not right. And Chris was shocked in disbelief.” She added, “I mean, this was his best friend. We didn’t want to believe it. But after that phone call, more came out. More came out, kept coming out, more is still coming out probably. I mean, it’s just, who is this person? I don’t know this person. Who was he?”
