JENNFER BARBER CORBIN'S FAMILY
Jennifer's father, Max Barber: "Barton, what you did was the right thing to do. Admitting to the murders of Jennifer and Dolly. The broekn hearts of the Barber, Hearn, and Corbin families you can't imagine. The hearts are going to mend. But I don't know about ours. I want you to know that Dalton and Dillon will get the love they need to grow. God may forgive you, I never will. I just virtually hope you burn in hell."
Jennifer's mother, Narda Barber: "I knew it, we all knew it."
"She is angry over many things. The way defense attorneys threatened to bring up details of her daughter's online affair, but how they barely mentioned Barton's longtime affair. The way her daughter's death was set up to look like a suicide. The fact that it took almost two years to get a key witness to come forward.
But she is especially hurt over how Barton Corbin's family defended him for so long and how they never personally offered condolences to her family.
"Jennifer was a part of that family and after nine years of cooking and cleaning and helping them, in her hour of need, she was deserted by the Corbin family."
"She said she did not look at her former son-in-law much during the proceedings. As her husband Max delivered the withering address to Corbin, Narda said she focused only on the words, which she said Max had not prepared in advance. "He said it straight from his heart and it was a small token of our family's sorrow. Justice is never going to return our daughter."
Jennifer's sister, Heather Barber Tierney said, "I just can't believe it's all over."
"I feel like an elephant was just lifted from my chest." "In her heart, she'd known all along. But to hear him say it. To hear her former brother-in-law, Barton Corbin, stand in a packed courtroom on Friday and say, yes, he'd pulled the trigger, well, it brought relief but also a hollowness. This man had stolen her best friend."
"Jennifer was a woman that touched a lot of people's lives, the healing can now begin."
"I just want to say, this was my sister. This is Jennifer Barber. She was a mother, she was a sister. She was a daughter, she was an aunt. She was a teacher, and she was a dear friend to a lot of people. And she was murdered by Barton Corbin."
"We did get a small bit of vengeance today. Nothing's going to bring Jennifer back. Our hearts are never going to heal from this."
"But we're going to pick up the peices today. We're going to learn to rebuild our family. And we want to thank you guys, the press, for helping us facilitate this."
"Heather Tierney and her husband, Doug, intend to seek permanent custody of Jennifer and Barton Corbin's sons, Dalton, 9, and Dillon, 7. Since the murder, the boys have been in the Tierney's temporary custody. "Jennifer Corbin's two children have been in the care of her family since her death and the two children will be given every opportunity to succeed in life."
