The weather has affected the Liz Carroll trial has entered its second day as one juror has reported that the weather is keeping her from making it to jury selection.

Jury selection is continues as the judge is asking the potential jurors further questions.  Twelve juror seats are available with four alternates.

The trial took a day off as freezing rain and snow pounded the Tri-State.  However, a hearing was held to rule whether or not two Cincinnati Enquirer reports would be subpoenaed as well as whether or not their notes would have to be turned over to the court. 

Judge Robert Ringold ruled that both Sheila McLaughlin and Eileen Kelley were to turn over their notes of interviews of the three main players involved in the death of three year old Marcus Fiesel.  The two reporters conducted interviews with the woman who is now on trial for murder, Liz Carroll, her husband David Carroll whose murder trail begins in March, and Amy Baker, the live-in girlfriend who was given immunity by the prosecution for testimony that implicated Liz and David Carroll were responsible for killing their foster child. 

The judge also ruled that should Liz Carroll take the stand in her defense, McLaughlin and Kelley would likely be called to testify about the interviews that they conducted with the Carrolls and Baker. 

Lawyers for the Enquirer argued that if the subpoena were allowed, it would violate the ability of a reporter to effectively do their job.
