Baby Doe identified: Mom and boyfriend arrested

A mother was arrested and her boyfriend was charged with murder in the death of a little girl whose body was found inside a trash bag on a Boston Harbor island this summer and who became known as Baby Doe.

 Michael McCarthy, who is not Bella's biological father, and the girl's mother, Rachelle Bond, have been in connection with the death.

"The tragedy of her death is compounded by the fact that her short life ended not by illness or accident, but we believe by an act of violence in the very place where she should have felt safest, in her home.

"We allege that McCarthy caused Bella's death, that he did so intentionally, that he and Bond took specific steps to keep Bella's death a secret and to avoid prosecution," Suffolk County District Attorney Daniel Conley said.
