Description

Davidson County, North Carolina. August 2nd, 2015. Molly Martens and her father, Tom Martens, killed Jason Corbett, Molly’s Irish Husband, in what they claim was an act of self-defense. Tom, and his wife Sharon, had stayed over at Molly & Jason's house that night, awoke to shouting and a scuffle upstairs. He grabbed an aluminum little league baseball bat that he had purchased for his grandson, Jack, and made his way upstairs to the source of the noise; Molly and Jason’s bedroom. There he claims he found Jason Corbett strangling Molly. A scuffle ensued that left Jason Corbett dead and naked on the floor of his bedroom with a caved in skull. Was this self-defense? Or was there another reason for them to kill Jason?

My one huge question that doesn't ever seem to come up in this case - what about Mollie's mum? She was down in the basement and knew there was an issue. I can't imagine she couldn't hear screams and thuds. Why didn't she call 911? this seems very premeditated.

I'm from Davidson County. I knew someone who knew Jason well.It always hits different when it's close to home.
