    Police in the US are continuing their investigation into the death of a Limerick man who was killed in a suspected domestic disturbance at his home in North Carolina.

    Jason Corbett (39), who is originally from the Janesboro area of Limerick city, was found at Panther Creek Court in Wallburg with fatal head injuries early on Sunday morning. The father of two children, moved to America four years ago after his first wife Mags Corbett died following an asthma attack in 2006. Its understood Mr Corbett was living in North Carolina with his new partner who is American and who previously worked as a child minder.

    Jason Corbett's father-in-law told 911: 'I struck him with a baseball bat'
    August 18, 2015

    http://www.independent.ie/irish-news...-31458784.html

    Thomas Martens, a former FBI agent, told 911 he had been “in an argument” with his son-in-law and that he had “struck him with a baseball bat”, the Irish Daily Mail reports. According to an police incident report seen by the paper, the incident was recorded as “an assault” by 911.
    ...
    His wife Molly was believed to have been the main suspect but police in the US have confirmed that her father Thomas Martens (65), a retired FBI agent, is also a person of interest.

    Obituary: http://rip.ie/showdn.php?dn=264394/J...sboro/Limerick

    LEXINGTON, N.C. -- Attorneys for Thomas Martens and Molly Corbett, charged with murdering Molly's husband Jason Corbett in their Wallburg home in Aug. 2015, said they may request to move the case elsewhere for fear they won't get a fair trial in Davidson County.

Why highlight something as evidence for their case that the prosecution did not do when they could have done it themselves? Surely the defence would have had access to this video.

    The defense could have subpoened the video and entered it into evidence. It is curious to me that neither side chose to use the video. Anyway, I do not think the jurors will take this bait, they will know that the defense had access to all the prosecution evidence, as required by law, and nothing has been withheld from them.
    All of my posts are to be perceived as IMO,JMO, or MOO.

    It's reminiscent the prosecution's closing that is of that lady attorney who famously in court during closing loudly before jurors counted the number of blows to victim while holding the weapon. If I'm not wrong I think it was a self defence/DV case too. Cannot think of her name but it was powerful!

I think their testimony will be enough for the jury to know the defendants stage the crime scene before calling 911.
    I know its not to the exact minute, but I am thinking in terms of hours, not minutes.

    Yes! Kelly Siegler from Houston, TX. It was a very powerful closing argument, in a similar trial. She won the case.

    Wow, just wow. That was some closing statement from the prosecution. They hammered everything home not just verbally but also visually, complete with sound effects. Slamming the bat and brick on the table was an excellent move.

    The numerous holes in TM statement were pointed out, they are glaringly obvious but him rounding them all up in one speech was very effective. TM wants the jury to believe that he acted in self defence, that JC was basically an animal, all this alteration happened over the space of nearly 30 minutes but nobody uttered a word. JC was strangling MM but there was not one mark on her. Not credible.

    He wants the jury to believe that he alone took the bat after hearing screams and his wife stayed calmly in the downstairs room. Not credible. He does not remember hitting the walls, he does not remember hitting JC while he was close to or on the ground. He does not remember either himself or his wife receiving numerous calls from MM while they were in transit to the house. He does not recall any blows being made by the paving stone but MM told him afterwards that she hit him. If he was there for all the alteration and MM hit him with the brick before hand, then JC would have been covered in blood when TM entered the room, but he does not remember this. If MM used the brick during the alteration he would have seen it but no, he had no knowledge of it. Not credible.

    TM claims that he called 911 within two minutes of JC going down, but medics found the body cold when they got there. He states that he and MM preformed CPR but their demeanour and the lack of blood on either of them suggests they did not.

    The state want the jury to believe that the lack of injuries on the lower part of JC's face was because MM head had been there. But MM has not injuries on her, that is some batting skills.

    If the jury find any part of his statement not credible, then the whole statement is in question, particularly with the knowledge that TM hated JC. They have no defence. The prosecution did a sterling job in their final rebuttal, the more I was reading the more I am convinced that both will be found guilty.

    I feel the prosecution had a very strong case, and performed well. However, juries can be unpredictable.

    IMHO

    Predictions anyone? Not what you wish or hope or think is fair...what you believe after the trial presentations... as we know them, of course.


    After that closing I'm changing my predictions. Every time that bat came down...

    Both guilty...murder 2nd degree.
    Everything I post here...is just my humble opinion. 😎
