Contributing sentiments towards policy:

42% : This case qualifies under our death penalty statute, based on the statutory aggravating circumstances...I don't question at all the decision of the state not to pursue the death penalty, but as I sit here in this courtroom and look around the many portraits of judges and other court officials and reflect on the fact that over the past century your family, including you, have been prosecuting people here in this courtroom, and many have received the death penalty, probably for lesser conduct.
40% : Prosecutors had previously said that they would ask a judge to sentence Murdaugh to life in prison without the possibility of parole, and are not seeking the death penalty, The New York Times reported.
