A woman in North Carolina and her ex-FBI agent father have been charged with the murder of her husband. Molly Martens Corbett, 31, and Thomas Michael Martens, 65, were both charged with second-degree murder and manslaughter in death of Jason Corbett.
Police found Corbett unresponsive, and suffering from head injuries, on Aug. 2. His wife and father-in-law were home at the time, and they gave statements to police linking the death to a “domestic disturbance”. Thomas Michael Martens, the retired FBI agent who reported the incident, stated that he hit his son-in-law with a baseball bat.
Molly Martens Corbett’s uncle, Mike Earnest, says that he expects the father and daughter to claim self-defense, stating that their actions were necessary and justified.
Since her arrest she has been asserting her innocence stating, “I cannot believe the level of slander, harassment, lies and absolute utter corruption. The truth does not matter. Shouldn’t the truth matter? Shouldn’t the truth prevail? Doesn’t anyone care about the truth?”.
