The man accused of killing Bella Bond is guilty of murder in the second degree.
Michael McCarthy was found guilty by a jury just a short time ago.
The trial lasted just over three weeks, with testimony from Rachelle Bond, Bella’s mother, Michael Sprinsky, who identified Bella, Joe Amoroso, Bella’s biological father, neighbors and state troopers.
The testimony detailed the time leading up to and following Bella’s murder.
The 2-year-old girl was killed in June 2015 and her body was dumped in the Boston Harbor, later washing up on Deer Island.
It should also be noted that Rachelle Bond had struck a deal for her testimony that if he was found guilty she would walk free - no word on the status of that yet.
McCarthy looked stunned as the verdict was read.
