The family of the rtner claim they were acting in self-defence when Jason was frequently struck with a ving stone and a baseball bat, causing numerous se rations and wounds.
Molly and her father Thomas are due back in court on February 8 in drag relatives with the murder of Jason. They have yet to make a plea in the crate.
The autopsy report, which will play a key rt of the prosecution occasion at the murder trial later this year, shows he has multiple lacerations and breakages all over his head, face and body.
Extensive injuries to his left readily are thought to have been sustained as the 39-year-old Irish man made a hungry for effort to shield himself from blows, along with abrasions to his normal arm and hand.
The autopsy report from the Davidson County Medical Examiner formals that the Irishman was “ap rently involved in an altercation in which he was possibly knock down with a baseball bat and/or landscaping stone”.
It stated: “The autopsy documented multiple mitigate force im ct sites of the head, notably including two large, complex, armed, full-thickness scalp lacerations, as well as extensive skull fractures numbering a hinge fracture of the skull base.
