Aisling Brady McCarthy has pleaded not guilty in the January death of Rehma Sabir.

The girl was taken to hospital on her first birthday with severe head injuries and died two days later.

An April 7, 2014, trial date was set during a hearing in Middlesex Superior Court in Massachusetts. The date is subject to change.

McCarthy's lawyer has said the baby returned home malnourished after travelling overseas with her parents, including to Pakistan, Saudi Arabia and London.

Immigration officials say McCarthy is living in the United States illegally after entering in 2002 from Ireland under a tourist programme that allowed a 90-day stay.
