Irish nanny to face court today

An Irish nanny charged with murder in the death of a one-year-old Massachusetts girl is returning to court so her lawyer and prosecutors can brief the judge on their trial preparations.

Aisling Brady McCarthy is due to appear today in Middlesex Superior Court.

She has sought bail, but prosecutors argue that if it’s granted, she would be deported immediately.

She is charged in the January 2013 death of Rehma Sabir, who was taken to the hospital with severe head injuries on her first birthday. She died two days later.

McCarthy’s lawyers say 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 claim DNA evidence ties McCarthy to the fatal injuries and clean-up at the scene.
