I think the claim that this man is guilty of murder is absolutely false, as people have been giving false testimonies as of late, and a lot of evidences suggest that there's more to what was shown in the court.

Can we separate and with a comma even though we're giving a second reason as to why "the claim is false"?

    A lot of evidences suggest is wrong. It should be a lot of evidence suggests. Aug 2, 2020 at 2:15
  • Where is it from? Presumably what was shown in the court was evidence. So it says a lot of the evidence suggests there's more to the evidence. Is that what the writer intended? Also, I'd make it 'of late': not 'as of late'. Aug 8, 2022 at 12:57

I think the 2nd comma is not required. The 1st comma should be removed as the independent clause precedes its dependent clause.

My suggestions is: 'I think the claim that this man is guilty of murder is absolutely false as people have been giving false testimonies as of late and a lot of evidence suggests that there's more to what was shown in the court.'
