Defense may rest in Bella Bond murder trial

Michael P. McCarthy 37 who is accused of killing his ex-girlfriend’s two-year-old daughter in 2015 has said he would not testify in a Boston court on Monday Defense Rests in 'Baby Doe' Murder Trial

McCarthy's defense called its first witness and is focusing on lies and false statements made by Rachelle Bond, the mother of 2-year-old Bella.

After 15 days of testimony, the defense rested its case on Monday morning - without Michael McCarthy taking the stand.

A MA man accused of killing "Baby Doe", dumping her body into Boston Harbor, and sparking a month-long police investigation to identify her, said he would not testify in his trial Monday. The little girl's remains were found washed ashore on Deer Island on June 25 of that year.

McCarthy has pleaded not guilty, and defense attorney, Jonathan Shapiro, has told jurors that Rachelle Bond is the actual killer of the child. Investigators called the toddler "Baby Doe" while they worked to identify her. He had been living with Bella Bond's mother, Rachelle Bond, at the time.


Bond pleaded guilty to being an accessory after the fact to murder in February. She was known only as "Baby Doe" until three months later, when a tip led to the arrests of McCarthy and Rachelle Bond.

Prosecutors allege that Bella had been abused before she was killed, and McCarthy murdered her because he thought she was possessed by evil spirits, according to People.

McCarthy's decision not to take the stand means jurors will only hear his voice through a tape-recorded interview conducted with law enforcement in 2015.

McCarthy, 37, faces life imprisonment without parole if convicted of first-degree murder.
