    Default Jason Corbett - the Molly Martens and Thomas Martens second degree murder trial

    Yesterday was the second anniversary of Jason Corbett's death. I'm just wondering if anybody has been following the trial. It's been going on for some time. The evidence is pretty harrowing to say the least.

    Took me a while to realise who this was - the children are back in Ireland now but she (Molly Martens) wanted custody?

    Seems like a grim case indeed?

    From what I have read in the above link, seems Mr Corbett was beaten savagely, but will say no more as its an ongoing case!
    Signatures are stoopid.

    Why is this case getting so much attention? (Other than obvious reason that because it's a US trial that normal sub judice rules don't apply and mainstream media can act like Publicity before Probity with ongoing commentary)

    I have reported my post to the mods in case we are not allowed discuss it.

    I can't remember ever reading of such a savage beating. They had the blood splatter expert up on Tuesday and again today as far as I can tell.

    Yes Molly wanted custody but did not succeed. She never had legal rights to them as Jason would not let her. (may he get justice in America)

    Until this thread I wasn't really aware of it to be honest but to answer your question it probably has to do with the fact that the accused, Molly Martens, seems to be a very attractive woman although its not often we hear of Irish people being murdered abroad so there is that, but the accused physical appearance would most likely be driving 'interest' in it more than anything else.

    If there is one thing outfits like the Indo love, its turning a tragedy into a drama.

    But it's not just the Indo, and it's mentioned nearly every day on Drivetime on RTE.

    I can't understand why they aren't on trial for first degree murder.
    If you continue to elect idiots in elections, don't be surprised when the result is an idiotic government.

    Don't agree. It's because of the way the murders happened, the prosecution need more for outright murder. The Martens are claiming self defense (neither of them had a mark on them) that Jason was choking Molly. A garden paving stone and a child's baseball bat were used by the Martens to beat Jason to death.

    Corbett's kids have made statements about him beating Martens.
