Accused Irish nanny seeks bail

Accused Irish nanny seeks bail

An Irish nanny charged with murder after the death of a one-year-old girl is due in court for a bail hearing.

Aisling Brady McCarthy will appear in Middlesex Superior Court in Woburn, Massachusetts, today to ask to be released on bail while awaiting trial over the January 2013 death of Rehma Sabir.

The girl was taken to hospital with severe head injuries on her first birthday and died two days later.

In court last week, McCarthy’s lawyers said two medical experts have concluded that the girl suffered bone fractures three to four weeks before her death when she was not in McCarthy’s care.

Prosecutors say they will respond to the defence claims regarding the baby’s earlier injuries during today’s hearing.
