Mom says man injected her with drugs after 'Baby Doe' death

Mom says man injected her with drugs after 'Baby Doe' death

The mother pled guilty to being an accessory after the fact as she helped dispose of Bella's body in the waters of South Boston.

The defense questioned Rachelle Bond Tuesday in the trial of Michael McCarthy, her former boyfriend accused of killing Bella Bond in 2015.

Bond later texted a pal of the event: "Ain't that some (expletive)?"

Shapiro says that during her first interview with police following her arrest, Rachelle made up another story for police-about McCarthy wrapping Bella's body in bags and placing her in the refrigerator. "I said, 'What did you do?' And he said, 'It was her time. And after that you didn't do anything either, did you?"

She said Michael McCarthy threatened to kill her if she said anything to police.

Whenever she brought up Bella's death, Bond said McCarthy "would just say she was a demon and deserved to die". Her testimony began on Friday last week and continues into its third day today. "It just snowballed into a bad effect".

McCarthy's lawyer told jurors Bond killed the girl.

Rachelle Bond on the witness stand Tuesday morning.

It was then, Bond allegedly told McCarthy that, "You killed my kid". "This is not a meek, submissive woman, and that's the point the commonwealth is making".

Shapiro argues that Bond killed the girl, who was initially dubbed "Baby Doe" after a composite image of her likeness was shared by millions on social media as authorities tried to identify her. Rachelle Bond testified last week that McCarthy used the auto to drive the girl's body to nearby water, weighted it down inside a garbage bag and a duffel bag, and threw it into the water. Shapiro subjected the 41-year-old Rachelle Bond to an intense cross examination. For instance, Bond said nothing to police about performing CPR on her dying daughter, but she didn't say anything about that to the police.

On Friday, Bond told jurors that McCarthy punched her daughter in the abdomen so hard that she bounced off a bed.

Prosecutors claim that McCarthy was obsessed with the occult and believed the girl was a demon.

"When you use, it kind of takes you out of reality", Bond said.
