‘The Murder Files: The Killing of Jason Corbett’ will also feature exclusive unseen police tapes and crime scene footage.

In August 2015, Limerick native Jason Corbett was found bludgeoned to death in his perfect, suburban all-American house.

Local police were called to his residence in the early hours of August 2, and it is believed that the 39-year-old died from fatal injuries to the head.

Those responsible, his beauty queen wife and her retired FBI agent father insist that they acted in self-defence. However, Jason's family tell a very different version of events - that Molly manipulated her way into the life of a vulnerable widow and killed him when he planned to leave with his kids.

Prosecutors claim that Martens killed Corbett with a baseball bat and a concrete paving brick.

Now four years after the Martens’ murder convictions and with a date for a retrial for Molly and Tom Martens due to be announced soon the case has entered the public consciousness once again.

The documentary tells the story from multiple perspectives of those closest to the case, featuring exclusive unseen police interviews with Molly and Tom Martens.
