(DAILYMAIL) — An Irish nanny accused of slamming an infant against a wall and changing table before presenting its lifeless body as sleeping to its relatives has pleaded not guilty to murder.

Defense attorneys for Aisling Brady McCarthy, 34, say the baby was already ‘sick’ and ‘not normal’ while in her care before found bruised and unconscious in her family’s Cambridge, Massachusetts home last January.

Prosecutors say Rehma Sabir was hospitalized with severe head injuries on her first birthday, January 14, before being declared brain dead two days later.
