BOSTON (AP) — Gov. Charlie Baker says the state’s child welfare agency will examine the previous work done by an employee who copied years-old reports when preparing evaluations of the mother of Bella Bond, the 2-year-old whose body was found on a Boston Harbor beach in June.

A report from the state’s Office of the Child Advocate found that a Department of Children and Families social worker “largely copied information” from 2006, six years before the child who was known as “Baby Doe” was born, when writing reports on the mother in 2012 and 2013, following reports of neglect.

Baker left open the possibility of discipline for the worker, whose name has not been made public.

The boyfriend of Bella’s mother is facing a murder charge and the mother is charged with being an accessory.
