UNIONTOWN, Pa. (AP) - A judge has ordered prosecutors to provide additional medical information to the attorney representing a woman charged along with a man in the death of their 23-month-old daughter.

The (Uniontown) Herald-Standard (https://bit.ly/2hG5suq ) reports that prosecutors must tell 27-year-old Andrea Dusha’s attorney within 90 days whether pathology slides, blood samples, tissue slides, hematology or other autopsy materials exist in the death of Lydia Wright.

Defense attorney Dianne Zerega says she requested the information in July but received no response.

Fayette County prosecutors allege that Dusha and 43-year-old Michael Lynn Wright Jr. left Wright strapped into a car seat for more than 12 hours in February 2016. A forensic pathologist said she died of malnutrition and dehydration. Prosecutors plan to seek the death penalty if they are convicted of first-degree murder.
