Former model and father convicted of beating her husband to death

Former model and father convicted of beating her husband to death”

As CrimeOnline previously reported, Jason's wife Molly Corbett, a former model, and her father, former Federal Bureau of Investigation 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.

Jason was found naked on the floor of his bedroom with his head bashed in, according to the Washington Post.

'I said she's just eight, she had a nightmare, and he forgot my parents were there'.

One said: "Molly and Tom put the Corbett family through sheer hell and continue to do so". She told the interviewer that she was afraid he would "sit up and start choking me again" when she was giving him CPR after the attack.

"I think at some point Dad came to help out and cover it up", Figueroa said.

Martens said he isn't sure what initially woke him that night, but he said that after hearing loud thumping, he ran upstairs with a baseball bat.

In the call, he claimed he had walked in on a violent argument between his daughter and Corbett and hit him in the head with a baseball bat. But, Martens says, Corbett was still able to drag Corbett into the bathroom.

"The evidence, to me, did not suggest that the story that was fabricated ever occurred", juror Miriam Figueroa said.

"Yes. Every time that they would talk about the kids, I was like, 'Molly's crying.' They'd show the pictures of her husband and his skull. I'll tell you that".

Molly Martens, who did not give evidence during the trial, refused to comment on whether she hit Mr Corbett with a brick found in the bedroom.

Though it didn't come up at trial, Molly claimed in her interview with 20/20 that Jason had been an abusive husband for years, though the jurors argued that the defense didn't present proof of that.

After the verdict was handed down, Molly and Tom Martens were sentenced to 20-25 years in prison.

It was not immediately clear if Martens and Molly Corbett planned to appeal.

In an interview with 20/20 after the verdict, defense attorney Walter Holton insisted that Molly was a victim of abuse the night of the incident and for years before it.

The full interview with be aired on ABC's 20/20 on Friday at 10 p.m (ET).
