Baker Arrested

The star witness in the Liz Carroll trial says she will not waive extradition and remains in custody Friday evening.  Baker appeared in a Clermont County court late Friday afternoon after Kentucky authorities obtained a warrant charging her with a class D felony. 

Amy Baker and David Carroll are both charged with Tampering with Evidence.    The formal criminal complaint says that the two disposed of the remains of Marcus Feisel's body in the Ohio River on or about August 7, 2006.  The Maysville Police Department and the Mason County Attorney said in a joint news release that bond was set at $50,000 for Baker.  No bond was set for Carroll who is already in an Ohio prison.

The Clermont County Prosecutors office says Baker turned herself in earlier this afternoon. Baker appeared in a Clermont County court later in the afternoon where she refused extradition. An extradition hearing will be scheduled next week.

In the bond hearing on Friday afternoon, Clermont County Assistant Prosecutor Daniel "Woody" Breyer spoke on Baker's behalf telling the judge she should be released on her own recognizance.  Breyer tells FOX 19 that the new charges in Kentucky came as a surprise to him and he says promises made to Baker when she was given immunity for testifying have been broken.

Baker was the star witness in the February trial of Liz Carroll.  Carroll's husband David later plead guilty to charges relating to the death of Marcus Feisel.  Ohio authorities granted Baker immunity last summer in the case in exchange for her cooperation in the investigation.  After her testimony, prosecutors in both Hamilton and Clermont County repeatedly said they did not intend to pursue any additional charges against Baker.
