As closing arguments ended in the double murder trial of Alex Murdaugh, O.J. Simpson, who spent his share of time on the stand, weighed in on the case.
The former football star was arrested following the killings of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman in 1994.
On the night of June 12, 1994, Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend, Ron Goldman, were found stabbed to death outside Nicole’s condo in the Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles.
Simpson, who had pleaded no contest to a domestic violence charge against Brown in 1989, was an immediate person of interest in their murders.

He was found not guilty the following year but was later convicted of armed robbery and kidnapping and sentenced to prison for a term of 9 to 33 years.
In a video posted to Twitter on Thursday, Simpson discussed his thoughts on the trial and Alex Murdaugh taking the stand.
“A whole lot of people asking me what I think about this Alex Murdaugh trial,” Simpson said. “I don’t know why they think I’m an expert.”
Simpson said he watched when Murdaugh take the stand, calling him a “habitual liar.”
“I thought it probably was a mistake ’cause the guy is an admitted liar,” Simpson said.
“When the trial first started, I watched him take the stand, and I thought it would probably be a mistake because the guy is an admitted liar, and it’s hard for me to think he can be on the same 5,6,7,8 days without lying. The question is, what it is a lie about? But lying and stealing money is a little different than murder,” said Simpson.
Simpson said he understood what Murdaugh was trying to accomplish by taking the stand and trying to convince just one or two jurors that “he was a good ol’ boy.”

“I’m not sure he didn’t succeed in doing that,” Simpson said.
“It wouldn’t surprise me in the least if this guy beats this case,” Simpson said. “He’s gonna go to jail for all the money he stole.”
“I got 9 to 33 years. Thirty-three years because I caught some guys trying to sell my stolen property, and I yelled at him, even they didn’t think I should go to jail.” Simpson said. “The judge gave me 9 to 33 years, so I’m trying to see what this guy is going to get.”
