DANBURY, Conn. -- A Connecticut nanny already charged with beating and burning a 3-year-old girl on a stove now faces 15 more counts after police reviewed more video from a hidden nanny cam.

A hearing is scheduled for Tuesday in Danbury Superior Court.

Danbury resident Lidia Quilligana was charged Friday with new felony charges alleging risk of injury to a minor.

The News-Times reports that court records say the DVR system used to store videos shows more abuse against the girl and 1-year-old twins.

Her lawyer, Jennifer Tunnard, would not comment Monday morning.

The 32-year-old Quilligana was charged in March with first-degree assault, risk of injury to a child and third-degree criminal mischief. She pleaded not guilty to those crimes and is being held on $1 million bond.
