Man allegedly punched baby thinking she was possessed

Michael McCarthy, a man arrested in connection with the death of Boston toddler Bella Bond, is alleged to have punched the 2-year-old because he thought the child was possessed, a law enforcement source involved in the investigation told CNN on Saturday.

It is unclear whether the punches killed the baby. McCarthy is the boyfriend of Bella’s mother. Bella’s body was found a trash bag on a rocky shoreline in Boston Harbor in June, and authorities initially referred to her as “Baby Doe” because her identity was unknown until authorities received a tip this week.
