Nanny accused of baby’s murder in new bail plea
Aisling Brady-McCarthy denies murder of 12-month-old infant from Massachusetts
Aisling Brady-McCarthy is charged with murder in the 2013 death of one-year-old Rehma Sabir.
An Irish nanny accused of killing a one-year-old US girl in her care is asking a judge to release her while authorities review medical evidence in the case.
The Co Cavan woman’s trial has been postponed indefinitely as the state Medical Examiner’s Office reviews a finding that Rehma Sabir died of traumatic head injuries and that her January 2013 death was murder.
Ms McCarthy, who was living illegally in the US and taking care of the baby in the family’s Cambridge home, has pleaded not guilty.
Her lawyers tried unsuccessfully in October to secure her release, saying she was willing to surrender her passport and be subject to GPS monitoring.
