Foster Father to Plead Guilty in Death of Young Son

CINCINNATI (AP) - A man will plead guilty to murder for the death of his 3-year-old foster son left bound up in a closet while he went to a family reunion, his attorney and the Clermont County prosecutor said Monday.

David Carroll Jr. agreed to accept a plea deal with a sentence of 15 years to life in prison, plus an additional one year for gross abuse of a corpse, said defense attorney Cathy Adams and Don White, Clermont County prosecutor. White said the agreement was subject to written confirmation and a judge's approval at a plea hearing Tuesday.

A jury last week convicted Carroll's wife, Liz, 30, of murder and six other charges, including kidnapping. She was sentenced to a total of 54 years to life in prison.

The Carrolls were charged with causing the death of Marcus Fiesel by leaving the developmentally disabled boy bound cocoon-like in a closet for two days while they went to a weekend family reunion in Kentucky in August.

Prosecutors say the Carrolls found Fiesel dead when they returned to their home just east of Cincinnati. The Carrolls told authorities the child had wandered off or had been snatched from a park in suburban Cincinnati, sparking a search by thousands of volunteers.

Prosecutors say David Carroll, 29, burned the boy's body and dumped the remains in the Ohio River.
