Nanny trial: How did baby die?

A lawyer for an Irish nanny charged over the death of a baby girl in the US has asked a judge to order prosecutors to provide more information on how the child died.

Aisling Brady McCarthy, 34, of Quincy, Massachusetts is charged with the murder of Rehma Sabir. The girl was taken to hospital on her first birthday with severe head injuries and died two days later.

McCarthy's lawyer Melinda Thompson said prosecutors have not provided specific information about the allegations.

Ms Thompson said grand jury testimony refers to "potential shaking and head injury" but there's no discussion of when or how that happened.

A prosecutor said he has turned over all the information he has.

The judge has not yet ruled on the application.
