Neighbor heard infant crying and knocked on door to no response
On Tuesday she pleaded not guilty to the charges and was remanded on $500,000 cash bail. Her defense attorney Melinda Thompson told the court her client did nothing to harm the infant while she was in her care.
It has also emerged that the Irish nanny was in charge of a second baby on the morning on January 14 as her employers Sameer Sabir and Nada Siddiqui were part of a nanny share.
It is understood the second child was dropped off between 12:20 p.m. to 12:30 p.m. Brady told the parent that Sabir was asleep in her room.
On the morning of Monday January 14 Brady arrived at the her employers home in Cambridge at around 7:50 am and woke the infant at 8:15 am, describing her to State Police as “cranky as usual.”
“By Ms. Brady’s own account, Rehma continued to play, eat, track her with her eyes and appear otherwise happy and normal at least until the 1:30 pm feeding,” prosecutors wrote.
“Based on this reported history, the fatal injuries were inflicted sometime during or after this feeding and prior to finding Rehma seizing in her crib at 4:30 pm.”
During interrogation with State police, Brady said the infant had napped from about 10:20 am. until about 1 pm She then placed the toddler into her high chair to feed her lunch.
Brady is quoted as describing the toddler as a “fussy eater who sometimes held food in her mouth for up to an hour.’’
She alleges to have fed the infant two or three spoonfuls of potatoes and eggs and her bottle. She says she briefly left the baby unattended before she returned to find the infant “slouched’’ in her chair with her eyes half-open.
Brady told investigators she then placed Rehma back into her crib for another nap and left her there until 4:15pm when she became concerned over the duration of the nap.
When she checked on the infant Brady says Rehma was clenching her fists and her arms and legs were stiff. She picked the infant up and she appeared limp.
State Police wrote “Brady got a wet cloth and placed it on Rehma’s head.”
The Irish nanny then called the child’s father, who told her to call 911. Soon after the child’s mother arrived home.
Prosecutors say Brady was the only adult with the infant after 1pm, when they allege the injuries were sustained.
