A former FBI agent and his daughter today were found guilty of killing the daughter's husband.

A Davidson County, North Carolina, jury found Thomas Martens, 67, who worked with the FBI for over 30 years, and his 33-year-old daughter, Molly Corbett, guilty of second-degree murder in the death of Corbett's 39-year-old husband, Jason Corbett, meaning they unanimously believed that Jason Corbett had been killed out of malice. Molly Corbett and Martens both claimed self-defense and that they acted in defense of each other.

When the verdict was announced, Molly Corbett was heard saying, “I'm really sorry to my mom, he should have just killed me.”

Today, both received the same sentence of a minimum of 20 years in prison and a maximum of 25 years, which had been recommended by the prosecution.

Martens and Molly Corbett alleged that on Aug. 2, 2015, Martens came to his daughter’s defense after Jason Corbett allegedly attacked her. In a 911 call from that night, Martens is heard telling the operator that he hit Jason Corbett "in the head with a baseball bat."
