He suffered a brutal death at the hands of his wife and her former FBI agent dad, but the path to justice for Jason Corbett’s family has been far from clear.

Found guilty by a North Carolina court of second degree murder, Molly and Tom Martens were originally sent to jail but had their convictions overturned by an Appeals Court before the Supreme Court subsequently agreed that the trial had been unfair.

Now, the pair will be tried again and the events around Jason’s death will be played out once more in a courtroom. But what actually happened on the night he died and just what did the father and daughter admit in the hours after the Irishman’s death?

Investigative journalist Lynne Kelleher’s chats with Nicola Tallant about the 911 call that alerted authorities to the Limerick man's brutal death, they dissect the police interviews with Tom and Molly and examine the toxicology results, autopsy findings and bloody crime scene reports.
