Prosecution Rests Case In Bella Bond Murder Trial

BOSTON (CBS) – The prosecution rested its case Friday in the trial of a man accused of killing two-year-old Bella Bond.

Michael McCarthy is facing a first-degree murder charge in Bella’s death.

Prosecutors say McCarthy struck and killed her because he was obsessed with the occult and believed she was a “demon.”

After the prosecution called its final witness on Friday, the judge denied a defense motion to dismiss the case because of a lack of evidence. The judge also denied a request that two defense witnesses not be on camera.

Michael McCarthy is facing a first-degree murder charge in Bella’s death.

His defense lawyers are trying to show that the girl’s mother, Rachelle Bond, killed her daughter.

A defense witness testified that she recognized Bella from a composite picture and Facebook photos that were shared millions of times.

She said that after recognizing Bella from the photos, she said she called police because she remembered seeing Rachelle and Bella on the train and that she thought Rachelle Bond was acting “strangely.”
