Man to be sentenced in death of girl known as 'Baby Doe'

Michael Mc Carthy watches as jury selection begins for his murder trial in Suffolk Superior Court in Boston. Mc Carthy was convicted Monday June 26 of second-degree murder in the death of Bella Bond who became known

The man found guilty in the murder of 2-year-old Bella Bond faces sentencing in Suffolk Superior Court Wednesday morning.

McCarthy, 37, would likely be sentenced to life in prison with eligibility for parole after 20 years.

Michael McCarthy was convicted Monday of second-degree murder in the little girl's death.

The girl got worldwide attention after millions of people on social media shared a computer-generated image of her. Investigators trying to identify her called her "Baby Doe". McCarthy's lawyers, however, said that it was Bond, instead, who killed her daughter and was obsessed with the occult.

McCarthy's ex-girlfriend and Bella's mother, Rachelle Bond, testified against McCarthy during the trial as part of a plea deal.

Her body was found inside a trash bag on Deer Island in Winthrop in June 2015 by a woman walking a dog.

Prosecutors alleged that McCarthy murdered Bella because he thought she was possessed by evil spirits.

The case broke open in September 2015 when Rachelle admitted to a friend that Bella was dead and not, as she had told others, taken away by the state's Department of Children and Families.

McCarthy's lawyer, Jonathan Shapiro, insisted that Bond was the real killer and cast a "web of lies" to blame McCarthy.

After the verdict was announced at McCarthy's trial, Shapiro said that the conviction was a "travesty of justice", according to the Boston Globe, for sending "an innocent man to prison".

Rachelle Bond, the prosecution's star witness, said in her testimony that she saw McCarthy kill her daughter. The judge came out in the middle of the two recommendations at 20 years. She earlier pleaded guilty to her role in concealing her daughter's death and has spent the past 22 months behind bars. Bond, 41, said Bella was having trouble sleeping at the time. She was expected to be released Tuesday into a drug addiction treatment facility but her release was postponed until July 12 due to a lack of available facilities.

Testimony during the trial showed the girl's short life was marked by turmoil. A friend testified that he saw McCarthy discipline the girl by putting her in a locked closet.
