Her father, Thomas Martens, is also listed as a person of interest.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up 11 year-old Jack and eight-year-old Sarah, who ate Mr Corbett’s children from his first marriage, were at the centre of a bitter custody battle which resulted in his sister Tracey Lynch and her husband David being recognised as their lawful guardians.Molly Martens then lodged an appeal to the Superior Court challenging the guardianship arrangement outlined in her husband’s will.This was rejected on Tuesday night by Superior Court Judge Ted Royster who said that the District Court was correct in ruling to grant guardianship to David and Tracey Lynch.In the early hours of Wednesday morning, Ms Martens again took to Facebook, as she regularly does, and directed messages at the young children.“Our lives do not matter in the eyes of the law,” she posted adding that “what matters, in the eyes of the law, is that I do not share your blood and I am not listed as your guardian on a document created before I met you. I am heartbroken, and devastatingly sorry.”However the facebook page “Bring Justice for Jason” carried a message on behalf of the Corbett family, stating that “Jack and Sarah can continue to be brought up in a safe and loving environment in accordance with their Daddy’s wishes.” Email NewsUS court rules that Jack and Sarah can stay in LimerickBy Staff Reporter – December 10, 2015 1067 Linkedin WhatsAppcenter_img Facebook Twitter Print Previous articleSoccer – Limerick FC U/19’s to face Cork City in FinalNext articleJapanese restaurant gutted in Limerick fire Staff Reporterhttp://www.limerickpost.ielast_img
