WOBURN, Mass. (AP) — A Boston couple who say their Irish nanny killed their 1-year-old daughter have been awarded $4 million in damages in their wrongful-death lawsuit against her.
The Boston Globe reports a judge awarded the damages Thursday to Sameer Sabir and Nada Siddiqui, whose daughter died in their Harvard Square apartment in 2013.
A murder charge against nanny Aisling Brady McCarthy was dropped last year after a medical examiner revised the original homicide ruling and said baby Rehma Sabir’s manner of death was “undetermined.”
McCarthy was deported to Ireland afterward. Her lawyer called the prosecution a “disgrace.”
The parents’ lawyer is Democratic former state Attorney General Martha Coakley. She says McCarthy doesn’t have $4 million but the parents want to prevent her from profiting from a movie or book deal.
