Carroll’s grand jury testimony made public

Liz Carroll’s Hamilton County grand jury testimony was released to the public Dec. 18 and her defense attorney wants it to be suppressed in her Clermont County murder trial.

Normally, Ohio law prohibits grand jury testimony from being released to the public, but Carroll’s statements were made public after defense attorney Gregory Cohen argued that her testimony should not be used against her because of her mental condition at the time.

As a result of Cohen’s suppression request, Hamilton County Assistant Prosecutor Mark Piepmeier submitted the transcripts and asked that they be admitted into evidence; this motion was granted and the testimony was entered into the official record.

According to that grand jury testimony, Carroll revealed under oath that she had originally lied to police about what happened to Marcus.
