Family takes action against nanny
12 Feb 2016 08:08
The parents of a baby girl who died in Massachusetts while in the care of an Irish nanny are suing the Irish woman.
-
Sameer Sabir and Nada Siddiqui are the parents of Rehma Sabir who died just after her first birthday in January 2013.
-
Cavan woman Aisling Brady McCarthy spent almost two and a half years in prison charged with murder and awaiting trial before charges were dropped against her last summer.
-
She was freed from custody but placed under house arrest and ultimately returned to Ireland in September.
-
The Sabir family filed legal papers to the Middlesex County Superior Court yesterday.
-
In an interview with the Boston Globe newspaper, the couple said their main motivation for the law suit was to ensure that Ms Brady McCarthy did not "make money off their child's death, through such ventures as book deals or movie contracts".
-
Their lawyer Jonathon Friedmann told the newspaper that the couple said they would drop the lawsuit if Ms Brady McCarthy "signed an agreement not to profit from Rehma's death".
-
In filing the complaint to the court yesterday, Baby Sabir's parents have requested a jury trial to decide the matter if an agreement cannot be reached in advance.
-
Ms Brady McCarthy had been accused of killing a one-year-old in her care by shaking her in Cambridge, Massachusetts in January 2013.
