The 12-person jury has been seated for the Jason Corbett murder trial in Davidson County. The selection process will continue Monday morning at 9:30 a.m., as attorneys still need to choose two alternate jurors. Attorneys will pick from a pool of 143 potential jurors. The pool was split into three groups: A, B and C. Group B is currently under consideration for the alternate jurors. Potential jurors are put through an extensive line of questioning from both prosecutors and defense attorneys.
Jury selection is underway in a Davidson County murder trial that is gaining international attention. Molly Martens Corbett and her father, Thomas Martens, both face second degree murder charges for the death of Ireland native, Jason Corbett, in August 2015. The two claim they acted in self defense when police said Martens beat Corbett to death with a baseball bat and a brick. Both have plead not guilty. Attorneys will pick the jury from a pool of 143 people.
A Surry County family is without a home after a fire ripped through their house Wednesday not once, but twice. “Fear, misery. You lose everything. You lose everything, from your children’s birth, everything that they make you through school,” Amanda Goins said. “All your memories are gone. You have nothing left.”That reality is still sinking in for the Goins family. A fire damaged their home Wednesday afternoon, forcing them to stay in a motel. A second fire engulfed their home that night.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
