A Massachusetts prosecutor says the mother of Baby Doe reported that her boyfriend killed the girl when she wouldn’t go to sleep one night and he called her a demon.

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.

Assistant District Attorney David Deakin says Bond told police that McCarthy believed Bella was possessed by demons. He says one night McCarthy went into her room when she was fussing before bedtime.

The prosecutor says Bond went into the room later and found Bella’s face swollen and gray.

Bond told police that McCarthy said it was Bella’s time to die.
