Wife and father-in-law guilty of second-degree murder of Jason Corbett

Jason Corbett died in August 2015
The defendants will either be charged with second-degree murder, the lesser included offence of voluntary manslaughter or found not guilty.
Thomas Martens, 67, and Molly Corbett, 33, both claimed self-defence in the 2 August 2015 killing of Jason Corbett. Mr Martens admitted hitting his son-in-law with a baseball bat but said that at the time he believed that Mr Corbett was going to kill his daughter.
Molly Martens Corbett, and her father Thomas Michael Corbett, are on trial for Irishman Jason Corbett's murder. Martens Corbett maintained she was innocent after the sentencing.
During sentencing, Molly said, while sobbing, "I did not murder my husband, my father did not murder my husband". "I wish he had killed me". But Martens said he heard loud noises coming from upstairs and he grabbed the metal baseball bat he planned to give Jack the next day and went upstairs. Three years later, Molly and Jason Corbett got married and moved to an upscale neighborhood in Winston-Salem.
However, according to reports, both accused were found by Davidson County police and paramedics to be uninjured at the scene with no bruises, cuts, abrasions or visible wounds.
A protracted child custody case erupted soon after Jason Corbett died. The only other witness called by the defence was William Cole, a former co-worker of Martens.
A little more than two years after Jason Corbett was killed in his Wallburg home in northern Davidson County, we are closer to a verdict in the trial accusing his wife and father-in-law of the crime.
Mr. Corbett's head wounds were so severe that the pathologist found his skull fractured in a number of places.
Defense attorneys have said that the two were acting in self-defense and that they feared for their lives during a struggle with the husband.
