Irish nanny wants murder charge dismissed

WOBURN — Lawyers for Irish nanny Aisling McCarthy Brady are accusing Middlesex prosecutors of acting unethically in the way they presented evidence to the grand jury that indicted her on a murder charge in the death of Rehma Sabir when the 1-year-old girl was solely in her care.

Defense lawyers also contend in court papers that the case put together by Middlesex District Attorney Marian T. Ryan’s office is so weak that it did not meet the low legal threshold of probable cause that is needed before Brady could be accused of committing any crime.
