A nanny who spent two years in jail after she was charged with killing a 1-year-old girl in her care before prosecutors dropped a murder charge now faces a lawsuit filed by the child's parents.
The Boston Globe reports that Sameer Sabir and Nada Siddiqui, of Cambridge, the parents of Rehma Sabir, filed the wrongful death lawsuit Thursday.
It alleges that Aisling Brady McCarthy was responsible for Rehma's death because of her "negligent, malicious, willful, wonton, reckless and/or grossly negligent acts."
Brady, who always maintained her innocence, was deported to her native Ireland soon after prosecutors dropped charges in August.
Charges were dropped after a medical examiner revised the original homicide ruling and said the baby's manner of death was "undetermined."
McCarthy's lawyer called the lawsuit "shocking and disturbing."
