Father & Daughter Due In Court Ahead Of Jason Corbett Murder Retrial

Molly Martens, and her father Tom, were convicted in 2017.

The father and daughter jailed for murdering Irishman Jason Corbett in the US in 2015 could walk free.

Molly Martens, and her father Tom, were convicted in 2017 of beating her 39 year old husband to death in their North Carolina home.

They served three and half years of their 20 to 25 year sentence before the second-degree murder convictions were quashed by the state's Supreme Court.

They're due back in court today for a retrial, but Southern Correspondent for the Irish Independent, Ralph Riegel says the pair could get off with 'time served' - on a lesser charge
