A LIMERICK MAN has been killed in a domestic dispute in North Carolina.

Jason Corbett, 39, was found unconscious inside a house at Panther Creek Court at around 3am on Sunday morning.

Officers found him after the County Sherrif’s house received an emergency call regarding an alleged assault.

There are persons of interest within the family.
