Former FBI Agent And His Daughter Found Guilty Of Murdering Her Husband With Baseball Bat

A former FBI agent and his daughter were found guilty of killing the daughter’s husband in North Carolina.

According to ABC News, 67-year-old Thomas Martens, a veteran with the FBI for over 30 years, and 33-year-old Molly Corbett were found guilty of second-degree murder in the death of 39-year-old Jason Corbett yesterday.

On Aug. 2, 2015, Martens and Molly Corbett claim that the husband allegedly attacked his wife. In a 911 call, Martens tells the operator that he hit his son-in-law “in the head with a baseball bat.” 

“He was choking my daughter. He said, ‘I’m going to kill her.’ He’s bleeding all over and I may have killed him.”

Martens and his daughter, whom the Daily Mail says is a former model, claimed they were acting out in self-defense but the prosecution argued that neither had injuries to support that. Jason Corbett also had hair and blood evidence that pointed to a struggle.

Debra Davis, 58, has been charged with the murder of 49-year-old Rodney Johnson. Police said she has already admitted to killing him, according to KHOU.

Woman Convicted Of Killing Husband After Parrot Witnessed Murder: “Don’t (Expletive) Shoot”

A pet parrot seemingly witnessed the murder of its owner in Michigan. Glenna Duram, 49, was convicted this week of first degree murder in the fatal shooting of her husband, 46-year-old Martin Duram. In 2015, he was shot five times before Glenna Duram attempted suicide, according to Associated Press.

Martin Duram’s ex-wife, Christina Keller, took ownership of Bud, an African Grey parrot, after the shooting. She has claimed that Bud repeated “don’t (expletive) shoot” in Martin Duram’s voice. His parents said it was possible that Bud was repeating the man’s last words, the BBC reported. The victim’s mother said the parrot has “the filthiest mouth around.”

The bird was not used in any of the court proceedings.
