BOSTON (AP) - Irish nanny Aisling Brady McCarthy is now facing a murder charge in the death of a Massachusetts child who died in January.
    
Authorities say a Middlesex County grand jury indicted the 34-year-old Friday on charges of first-degree murder and assault and battery on a child causing bodily injury.
    
McCarthy was arrested after the death of Rehma Sabir of Cambridge, who was hospitalized with severe head injuries on her first birthday and died two days later.
    
The Quincy woman previously pleaded not guilty to assault and battery on a child causing substantial bodily injury.
    
She was jailed in lieu of $500,000 in bail while authorities awaited the child's autopsy results.
    
Her lawyer, who couldn't be immediately reached Friday, had protested the high bail and said Brady was "an innocent person sitting in jail."
