Thanksgiving is a time for reflection for most Americans and in the tragedy of Marcus Fiesel, the possible beginning of some closure in the case.
Prosecutors in Butler County announced on Wednesday that the Carrolls have been charged with muder and a host of other charges including involuntary manslaughter, and child endangering. Charges that prosecutors believe will put the Carrolls away for the rest of their lives.
The charge of involuntary manslaughter against the Carrolls in Hamilton County will be dropped. One question that kept the death penalty out of the picture was the fact that prosecutors believe that the Carrolls did not intend to kill Marcus when the wrapped him in a blanket with packing tape and left him in a closet for two days. They say that Marcus provided the couple with one thousand dollars a month from Butler County in foster child payments. Prosecutors say that Marcus' death was indeed accidental.
The Carrolls will be arraigned this morning in Clermont County Court.
In another note, the Butler County Ombudsman will release his report on how Butler County Children's Services Dealt with Marcus and how he was placed with the Carrolls.
