Family of murdered Limerick man Jason Corbett to appear on Late Late Show

Jason Corbett

THE FAMILY of murdered Limerick man Jason Corbett is due to appear on RTÉ’s The Late Late Show this Friday night. 

Jason's death at the hands of his second wife Molly Martens and her father Thomas Martens shocked both Ireland and the US. 

In their first major Irish television interview since the murder trial Tracey Corbett-Lynch, along with siblings Wayne Corbett and Marilyn Corbett, will join Ryan Tubridy this evening to discuss the events that lead to Jason’s death and the trauma of the subsequent trial for his family.

A new book written by Ms Corbett Lynch and Irish Independent journalist Ralph Riegel is set to tell the story of the life and death of the father-of-two from Janesboro who was savagely beaten to death in the bedroom of his home in August 2015. 

Molly Martens and her father Thomas, a retired FBI agent, are both currently serving life sentences of more than 20 years after they were found guilty of his murder at the home he shared with Martens in Wallburg, North Carolina. 

In My Brother Jason: The Untold Story of Jason Corbett’s Life and Brutal Death, Ms Corbett Lynch will reveal for the first time “the full and shocking story of what Molly and Tom Martens tried to get away with.”
