The court has not set a date for a hearing on a change of venue request by Liz Carroll's attorneys. They say statements made in Hamilton County will make it difficult to seat a jury.

UPDATE - 11:10 a.m. - The Hamilton County judge hearing the Liz Carroll case has ruled that the evidence that Carroll's attorneys tried to have supressed will be admitted as evidence into the trial. 

This could be a big blow to her defense because in the grand jury testimony, Liz Carroll admits that her husband, David Carroll, and live-in friend Amy Baker apparently put the young foster child in the closet before heading to a family reunion for two days.

A woman who is accused of helping to kill her three-year-old foster child will be in two courtrooms in two counties.

Liz Carroll will begin her day in Hamilton County where she and her attorneys will find out if evidence that was released by the Hamilton County Prosecutor will be suppressed in her trial.

Carroll is on trial for inducing panic and making false reports after telling police that Marcus Fiesel was missing after she apparently had a fainting spell. Prosecutors say that was a cover up, that Fiesel was killed several days earlier after being wrapped up in a blanket and placed in a closet for two days.

In December, Judge Alex Triantiflou found Carroll competent to stand trial. 

Carroll will then be in a Clermont County court where her attorneys will push to have the case moved. Attorneys there say that she will not get a fair trial because of the grand jury testimony that was made public by prosecutors in Hamilton County.

Her murder trial is scheduled to begin in late January. 

We will have the latest information on FOX19.com and tonight on the Ten O'clock News.
