The 29 year old man accused of killing his foster son who has maintained his innocence will plead guilty in court on Tuesday morning.

David Carroll will enter the plea in Judge Jerry McBride's courtroom.

Prosecutors say that David and his wife, 30 year old Liz Carroll, wrapped up three year old Marcus Fiesel in a blanket, bound him with tape and left him in a closet where he died.  Investigators then say that after arriving back from a family reunion, David Carroll and live-in girlfriend Amy Baker took Fiesel's body and burned it on a Brown County farm and threw his remains into the Ohio River. 

As part of the deal, David Carroll will be sentenced to 15 years to life in prison for the murder charge. He will also get one year in prison for the charge of gross abuse of a corpse.

According to Clermont County prosecutor Don White the judge will have final approval of the plea agreement.

David Carroll had initially rejected a plea agreement but after his wife Liz Carroll was given 54 years to life in prison after being convicted of murder, that deal was back on the table.

We will carry the plea hearing live tomorrow morning at 8:30 on the FOX19 News and stream it live on FOX19.com.
