For the past few weeks we've been covering the murder trial of Bella Bond, the 2-year-old whose remains were found on Deer Island in 2015.

The jury has been deliberating since yesterday whether or not Michael McCarthy, the mother's boyfriend, killed the toddler.

But today we want to go back to the end of the trial, and two key decisions made by Suffolk Superior Court Judge Janet Sanders.
