The attorney representing David Carroll is quitting the case.
Scott Rubenstein asked Judge Alex Triantafilou if he could be removed from the case.
Carroll, who is accused of killing three year old Marcus Fiesel in Clermont County, faces charges of inducing panic and making false alarms in Hamilton County.
Police say that the Carrolls told police that the foster child had either been taken or had wandered off after Liz fainted from a medical condition.
A public defender has been named to take over the case.
