On August 9, 2017 in Davidson County North Carolina, Molly & Tom were convicted of 2nd degree murder and in less than an hour sentenced to up to 25 years in prison. We believe that Molly and Tom were acting in self defense.
On August 2nd 2015, while visiting Molly in her home, Molly's father Tom (a retired FBI Special Agent) awoke suddenly. During the events that followed, the husband died.
