One person posted: “Molly and Tom are vicious murderers who haven’t got enough conscience to admit their guilt and do their time. Two little children left orphans because these two thought and think they are above the law.” Another reads: “It is disgusting to continuously hear about the lies told about a man who isn’t here to defend himself. The crime scene spoke the truth and they are where they belong – former FBI or not.”

Mr Earnest, who is a Government special agent, defended the page and wrote: “On January 31 this year the North Carolina Court of Appeals heard oral arguments in furtherance of an appeal filed by attorneys representing Tom and Molly Martens.

“In support of this effort, a Facebook page has been initiated. This page will simply report facts and the truth, which will show Tom and Molly did not receive a fair trial and that the verdict should be overturned. We will continue this fight to free them.”

Ms Martens first met Mr Corbett when she moved to Limerick from the US as his children’s nanny after his first wife died. The pair married in 2011.

The victim’s family believe he was killed as he planned to move back to Ireland with his kids due to increasingly bizarre behaviour of Ms Martens – who has a history of mental health issues.

The murder trial heard Mr Corbett was bludgeoned to death with a paving stone kept on Ms Marten’s night stand. An aluminium youth baseball bat was also used up to 12 times by Mr Martens, who claimed it was used to get Jason to release his stranglehold on his daughter.

The father and daughter claim they had acted in self defence.

In one of the posts on the Free Tom And Molly page the pair’s family say, “Here are the facts: One night while Tom and his wife were visiting Molly and her family, Tom heard sounds of a struggle.

“He found Jason strangling Molly. When Jason refused to stop and shouted he was going to kill Molly, Tom

intervened. Jason died in the struggle.”

Another post claims: “The truth matters. An outrageous fiction that has been floated for some time is that Jason Corbett was planning to leave Molly and return to Ireland with the children.

“That’s not true. No evidence was presented at trial to support this fantasy.”

Documents have been lodged by North Carolina state prosecutors in response to the appeals by the Martens against their convictions.

The State case is the father and daughter fabricated the self-defence story to explain Mr Corbett’s murder.

The outcome of the Court of Appeals ruling is expected in several months.

If the pair fail to win a retrial, their only option is the supreme court.
