Mom of Baby Doe held on $1M bond; no bail for boyfriend

BOSTON (AP) – A Massachusetts judge has ordered the mother of Baby Doe to be held on $1 million cash bond and the mother’s boyfriend to be held without bail.

Rachelle Bond is the mother of 2-year-old Bella Bond, who was found dead in a trash bag washed up on a Boston Harbor island on June 25. Her boyfriend, Michael McCarthy, is charged with killing Bella.

Bond is charged as an accessory after the fact.

Bond’s lawyer had asked the judge to set a $250 cash bail and allow her to be under house arrest and with an electronic bracelet. That comment drew murmurs and snickers from people in the courtroom.

Earlier during Monday’s arraignment, a woman was escorted out of the courtroom after she yelled at Bond: “I hope you rot in hell!”
