Liz Carroll Found Competent To Stand Trial In Hamilton County

She is accused of misleading police, creating a panic situation, and killing her three year old foster child, and in court, she has been found competent to stand trial on two of those charges in Hamilton County.

Judge Patrick Dinkelacker ruled that 30-year-old Liz Carroll will stand trial on charges that she told police that someone took her foster son Marcus Fiesel after she allegedly passed out from a health condition.  Police say that over the next few days she induced panic by creating a situation where police and the community pitched in to fervently search for the boy that, prosecutor say, she knew had been murdered several days before reporting him missing.

Liz and her husband David Carroll face the charges of inducing panic and making false alarms.  According to court records, Liz also faces two counts of perjury.

The Carrolls still face murder charges in Clermont County where, according to prosecutors, the couple wrapped the three year old developmentally disabled child in a blanket and bound him with packing tape.  The Carrolls then allegedly then left Marcus in a closet for two days killing him. 

David Carroll is scheduled to be back in court for a hearing next week.
