Bond ran to sister's aid, but failed Bella

Rachelle Bond testifies in Suffolk Superior Court under questioning from assistant district attorney David Deakin in Boston on Monday

According to CBS News, Bond told jurors that Michael McCarthy punched the child, Bella, in the abdomen with such force that she literally bounced off the bed.

"Yet, when your own child was involved you didn't confront who you say was hurting her?" Shapiro pressed Bond yesterday during her third day of testimony in Michael P. McCarthy's murder trial. "I couldn't hold it back anymore".

The man accused of killing 2-year-old Bella Bond, the cherubic girl whose unidentified remains were found in a trash bag two years ago near Boston, was obsessed with the occult and thought the young girl was a demon, Suffolk County prosecutors said in opening statements. Rachelle Bond believed it to have been May 27, two days before McCarthy's birthday; however, she might have been wrong, she testified, because she was basing the date of Bella's death on the date McCarthy was supposed to pick up a vehicle. He then came forward to authorities with what Bond said, leading to the arrests. She previously pleaded guilty to being an accessory after the fact for helping dispose of her daughter's body.

One McCarthy text about Bella said, "we love her too much to even let the vampires be around her". "She was a demon". While she was questioned by prosecutor David Deakin on Friday and early Monday, neither she nor Deakin mentioned the refrigerator.

After Bella was killed, Rachelle said McCarthy put her body into a duffel bag with weights and threw it into Boston Harbor. "It was her time to die". 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. She said she was using mostly so she wouldn't have to think about her daughter's death. She said she wanted to tell Amoroso first, before telling the police; she also claimed she wanted to contact an attorney.

Rachelle Bond testified that it was McCarthy who began disciplining Bella and adding the concept of consistent sleep schedules into the girl's life. Shapiro subjected the 41-year-old Rachelle Bond to an intense cross examination. The composite image created by the Massachusetts State Police went viral on social media.

Shapiro interjected, "You made a mistake?"
