Graphic crime scene photos of widower killed by model wife and her former FBI agent father

Police in North Carolina have released crime scene photos of the murder of Jason Corbett, an Irish national who moved to the United States after he married his American au pair.

Corbett’s first wife died suddenly of an asthma attack in 2006, leaving two children.

As CrimeOnline previously reported, Jason’s wife Molly Corbett, a former model, and her father, former FBI agent Thomas Martens, were both found guilty and sentenced to a minimum of 20 years in prison for the murder of Jason Corbett, who Molly claimed routinely abused her.

The father and daughter each claimed the killing was in self-defense, but prosecutors convinced the jury that Jason was killed in cold blood, presenting evidence that Jason’s skull was bashed in with a baseball bat and a brick, and arguing that Martens and his daughter did not have defensive wounds that would support a self-defense plea.

The jury returned a verdict in only three hours, astonishing the courtroom. As the Winston-Salem Journal noted, because the case was tried in state court, the trial moved to the sentencing right away. Jason’s family members, including his 12-year-old son who Molly raised for several years, gave statements at the trial and the sentencing on behalf of the prosecution.

On Thursday, the Davidson County Sheriff’s office released photos of the crime scene, and of the suspects after they were taken in for questioning.
