The trial included testimony about the girl’s short and tragic life. Both Bond and McCarthy were heroin addicts. A friend testified that McCarthy would lock the girl in a closet to discipline her. He said McCarthy had been obsessed with the occult for years.

Bond testified that on the night Bella died, she walked into the girl’s bedroom and saw McCarthy leaning over her and punching her. She said she saw McCarthy punch her in the abdomen so hard she bounced off the mattress.

“He said it was her time to die, she was a demon,” Bond said.

McCarthy’s lawyer aggressively cross-examined Bond about why she didn’t call police or report her daughter’s death to anyone. She claimed McCarthy threatened to kill her.

The defense also said prosecutors “made a deal with the devil” in offering Bond time-served in exchange for her testimony against McCarthy.
