The mother of Bella Bond is expected in court for a status hearing in Winthrop Thursday.

Rachelle Bond is being charged as an accessory to her daughter’s murder.

Police say her boyfriend killed the two-year-old after she refused to go to bed.

Bella’s remains were discovered on Deer Island last June.

Rachelle Bond’s trial is expected to start later this year.
