Trial set for Irish nanny in Mass. baby's deathMay 9, 2013 @ 11:12 am
WOBURN, Mass. (AP) - A tentative trial date has been set for an Irish nanny charged with murder in the death of a Massachusetts baby.
Aisling (ASH'-ling) Brady McCarthy has pleaded not guilty in the January death of Rehma Sabir (REM'-uh suh-BEHR'). The Cambridge, Mass., girl was hospitalized on her first birthday with severe head injuries and died two days later.
An April 7, 2014, trial date was set during a hearing Thursday in Middlesex Superior Court. The date is subject to change.
McCarthy's lawyer has said the baby returned home malnourished after traveling overseas with her parents, including to Pakistan, Saudi Arabia and London.
Immigration officials say McCarthy is living in the United States illegally after entering in 2002 from Ireland under a tourist program that allowed a 90-day stay.
