Autopsy results pending for toddler

One month ago, 1-year-old ­Rehma Sabir died of what authorities called abusive head trauma. But her death certificate provides just a one-word description of the cause of death: pending.

While Sabir’s nanny, Aisling ­Brady, remains in custody on charges of assaulting the child, medical examiners have yet to complete ­Sabir’s autopsy. Prosecutors say ­Brady, 34, had sole contact with the child at the time of the injuries, which included massive brain swelling and bleeding behind her eyes.
