Former FBI agent, his daughter found guilty of murdering her husband

In a 911 call from the night played to the jury, Martens was heard telling the operator that he hit Jason Corbett "in the head with a baseball bat". He admits he swung the bat and quite they're both convicted of second degree murder.

The judge sentenced both to 20 to 25 years in prison with their attorneys saying they'll appeal the sentences.

An ex-FBI agent and his former-model daughter were found guilty of slaying the beauty's husband, who was found naked with his head bashed in by a brick and a baseball bat.

The defense denied the prosecution's claims, saying Corbett a former model and her Federal Bureau of Investigation father were acting in self-defense the night the husband was killed.

On the evening of the man's murder, lawyers alleged 67-year-old Martens rushed upstairs in the early hours of August 5, 2015 after he heard his daughter screaming.

The jury of the closely-watched trial of Molly Martens Corbett in the murder case of her husband Jason Corbett has come to a verdict.

When he arrived, Martens said he saw Jason's hands around Molly's throat.

"We were confident in one of the defendants, but we had more (difficulty) with the other", Mr Ammland said. I should have just let him kill me.

"You'd never expect that to happen to anyone, let alone my twin brother, you would never expect a wife and father-in-law to do that to anyone in any circumstances whatsoever".

Family said Jason and Molly were married about four years. One of them used a brick - a brick that had been on her nightstand. "But Jason died in a cruel and brutal way", she said.

After the verdict was read in court, Molly Corbett said: "I'm really sorry to my mom, he should have just killed me" according to ABC News.

"She wouldn't tell them where he was at first". Testimony and 911 calls show Martens came to his daughter's defense the night of August 3, 2015, when he says he saw Jason choking Molly.

She said: "Even though he's only coming up to 13 he's had to grow up very quickly and he's a very mature little guy, maybe he had to write that letter for himself".

The prosecution painted a picture of Ms Martens as a murderer who wanted to divorce Jason but to keep his children as well as a half a million dollar life-insurance payout on his death.

"How many times that was I don't know but he was definitely dead when he was struck. He worked hard. He done everything he could for his family, and they had a fantastic life - Mags and Jason - for the time they were together". "My burden will not be lifted until she is put away".

Both the father and daughter argued self-defense and claimed that Mr. Corbett had attacked his wife and threatened to kill her.

"They will know that they are safe and they'll be looked after and loved by Tracy and Dave and surrounded by their family raising Jack and Sarah".
