Inside of a packed courtroom, Liz and David Carroll's future as defendants began with an arraignment. Both being held on a 10.1 million dollar bond.

The courtroom where they appeared became a media frenzy after the arraignment. Marcus Feisel's biological mother sat crying in the back of the courtroom. People who had no ties to the three year old boy showed up to witness, then left in tears. Moved by the story that has gripped the Tri-State for two weeks.

Many people have had an emotional tie to the case. When Marcus was reported missing by Liz Carroll, his foster mother, hundreds turned out at Juilf's Park to search every inch of the park and the surrounding five mile area. All along, Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters said that Liz and David both knew that Marcus was dead. His body burned and discarded into the Ohio River according to Deters.

On Wednesday night, many of those who searched and others came back to the park to remember. More than once described as overwhelming, hundreds waited in line to write messages and poems on a card. Even more lit candles and prayed with local church leaders in hopes that Marcus has finally found peace.

The memory of the three year old boy will be immortalized in a nearby park. Plans for a new playground for children with disabilities are in the works at Beach Acres. Organizers say that it will bear Marcus Fiesel's name.

Plans are also in the works for a Marcus Fiesel memorial at Juilf's Park to remember his life and how the community came together for him.
