UPDATE - 12:46 p.m. -  The prosecution's star witness said that they made it appear like a game, wrapping up someone up in a blanket and wrapping the children up in tape.

Baker, Liz and David Carroll's live-in girlfriend, accused the couple of killing Marcus Fiesel with the blanket and told her side of the story to a Clermont County jury on Monday.

The 25 year old Baker said that Liz Carroll didn't want the three year old foster child to accompany them to a family reunion in Kentucky. So according to Baker, Liz and David Carroll left Marcus wrapped in a blanket and left him in a closet while they attended the family reunion in Williamstown, Kentucky.

Baker made a deal with prosecutors for her testimony. She was given immunity for her information surrounding the death of three year old Marcus. Liz and David Carroll point the finger back at Baker saying that she is the one who killed Marcus.

Baker will be cross examined by the defense after lunch.


With week one of the Liz Carroll murder trial over, the prosecuton's star witness did not take the stand until today.

Baker is on the stand telling the jury of her history with the Carrolls.

Twenty five year old Amy Baker worked out a deal with prosecutors that she would tell them her story for the promise of immunity. She said that Liz Carroll and her husband David Carroll were the ones who wrapped their three year old foster son in a blanket and left him in a closet to die.

According to a Cincinnati Enquirer article, the Carrolls pointed their finger back at Baker saying that she wrapped up Marcus Fiesel.

On Friday Hamilton County Sheriff's Department investigators said that they tried to get Liz to tell them where Marcus was. But they say that Liz kept to her story saying that Marcus disappeared in Julif's Park after she allegedly fainted.

"The first thing I said to Liz Carroll was, you know and I know that marcus is dead. And only you know where we can find him at, and you need to tell us now," said Investigator Ken Schweinfus as he was called to the stand on Friday.

Another investigator, Randy Fore, said that Baker came clean on what happened, "she showed us what happened with Marcus Fiesel, told us how it happened."

Baker's testimony to the grand jury led investigators to a Brown County chimney where bone fragments were found. Baker told investigators that Liz and David Carroll killed Marcus. Then Baker and David Carroll took Marcus' body to a farm that belonged to a relative of Baker's and burned the three year old developmentally disabled boy's body and then tried to dispose of them by throwing the remains into the Ohio River.
