A lawyer for Aisling Brady McCarthy, the nanny accused of fatally beating a 1-year-old Cambridge girl in her care, asked a judge Tuesday to order prosecutors to hand over information to clarify the case. Defense attorney Melinda Thompson asked the judge in Middlesex Superior Court to order prosecutors to disclose to the defense a variety of evidence they have collected, including McCarthy’s diary, phone records, and data from the hard drive of the computer used by the family of the victim, Rhema Sabir. Patrick Fitzgerald, an assistant district attorney, countered that he has kept Thompson informed about the autopsy, which he said is completed.
