Daughters Condemn Father at Sentencing for Ex-Wife’s Murder: ‘You Are Useless

During Jason Starr’s sentencing for his involvement in his ex-wife’s 2017 murder, his daughters expressed strong condemnation. One daughter bluntly told him, “F–k you, I hope you rot,” while another stated, “You are useless,” as reported by News 4.

Jason, along with his brother Darrin Starr, received a life sentence from a federal judge on Thursday for the murder of Jason’s ex-wife, Sara Starr. The sentencing, covered by News 4, The Messenger, and local outlet the Enterprise Ledger, emphasized the severity of the crime. Notably, there is no parole in the federal court system.

Additionally, the judge imposed a $25,000 fine on Jason. The brothers were convicted in September 2023 for their involvement in a murder-for-hire scheme. The jury found them guilty of conspiring to kill Sara, a 38-year-old teacher and mother of four, due to Jason’s reluctance to fulfill financial obligations from their divorce.

Jason, residing in Coffee Springs, Ala., had enlisted his brother Darrin, based in Lakehills, Texas, to carry out the murder. As part of the plan, Jason gave Darrin a motorcycle valued at approximately $2,600 between September and November 2017. Sara was fatally shot with two close-range gunshots on November 27, 2017, as she left her home in Chancellor to go to work.

After the sentencing, acting U.S. Attorney Johnathan S. Ross remarked that the Starr brothers had caused harm that reverberated throughout the community.
