Carroll’s murder trial postponed

David Carroll, Jr.’s Clermont County murder trial has been postponed until March 19 and he has until Feb. 22 to decide whether or not to accept a plea bargain in the death of his three-year old foster son Marcus Fiesel.

On Feb. 6, Clermont County Judge Jerry McBride granted a six-week continuance to Carroll’s new attorney Cathy Adams.

Batavia private defense attorney Adams was retained by the family of David Carroll Feb. 1 to defend him in the murder trial; court appointed attorneys Scott Rubenstein and Steophen Wenke have now been released from his defense team.

The new counsel and the continuance will not affect the proposed plea bargain.
