(NECN/AP) - Investigators say a pillow, blanket and baby wipes stained with blood were found in the bedroom of the 1-year-old Massachusetts girl who died after she was allegedly assaulted by her Irish nanny.
 
Aisling McCarthy Brady is being held on $500,000 bail near Boston after pleading not guilty Tuesday to an assault charge.
 
Authorities say she could be charged with murder after an autopsy is completed on Rehma Sabir, a Cambridge infant who was hospitalized with head injuries on Jan. 14 - her first birthday - and died two days later.
 
In court documents filed Tuesday, state police said they found a bloody blanket and pillow in a crib and blood-stained baby wipes discarded in a diaper pail.
 
Brady's lawyer says her client had no role in the baby's death.

New information shows that Brady has also been in the country illegally for more than 10 years.

Bristol County Sheriff Thomas Hodgson and Frank Soults, Communications Director for MIRA (Massachusetts Immigrant and Refugee Advocacy Coalition), joined "The Morning Show" to discuss the case and what it means for the big push for immigration reform.
