50 - Murdered Abroad: The story of Jason Corbett

Sep 15, 2019, 02:00 AM
In August of 2015, a Limerick man, Jason Corbett, was found dead on his bedroom floor of the master bedroom of his lavish family home in North Carolina. His young wife and her father were covered in blood hen police arrived, and a bloody baseball bat and paving brick were found in the bedroom. They told the police that Jason had been killed in self defence.

But Molly and Tom Martens would both face trial for the murder of Jason Corbett. The Limerick man's family fought for justice, and for custody of his two young children, which was watched by people, both at home and abroad.
