BOSTON (AP) - An Irish nanny accused of killing a Massachusetts baby in her care is facing a murder charge.
Authorities say a Middlesex County grand jury indicted 34-year-old Aisling Brady McCarthy on Friday on charges of murder and assault and battery on a child causing bodily injury. They say she's accused of "violently injuring" baby Rehma Sabir.
Rehma was hospitalized with severe head injuries in January on her first birthday and died two days later. Her family lives in Cambridge, just outside Boston.
McCarthy lives in nearby Quincy. She previously pleaded not guilty to assault and battery on a child. She was jailed on $500,000 bail while authorities awaited the baby's autopsy results.
McCarthy's lawyer had protested the high bail and said she was "an innocent person sitting in jail."
