WOBURN, Mass. — Attorneys for an Irish nanny charged in the death of a Massachusetts baby are waiting for reports related to broken bones the child might have suffered weeks before she died.

Aisling (ASH'-ling) Brady McCarthy, of Quincy, is charged with murder and assault and battery on a child in the January death of Rehma Sabir (REM'-uh suh-BEHR'). The girl was hospitalized on her first birthday with severe head injuries and died two days later.

McCarthy's lawyer has accused prosecutors of presenting "false and deceptive" information to a grand jury, including mention of earlier bone fractures the defense says haven't been tied to McCarthy.

During a pretrial hearing Wednesday, McCarthy's lawyer says the defense is waiting for medical reports on the existence of bone fractures.

Another hearing is scheduled for Nov. 19.
