BELFAST, Maine (AP) - A judge says prosecutors improperly obtained a psychological evaluation and other records in the case against a Maine woman charged in the fatal beating of her 10-year-old daughter.

Superior Court Justice Robert Murray gave prosecutors 48 hours to hand over any paper records and ordered them to destroy any electronic records.

Sharon Carrillo and her husband are accused of taking turns beating Sharon’s daughter, Marissa Kennedy. The girl died in late February in Stockton Springs.

The defense contends prosecutors deceitfully obtained records from a boarding school for people with learning disabilities that Sharon Carrillo attended. They say prosecutors used a bogus court appearance in Maine as leverage to obtain the records.

Assistant Attorney General Leane Zainea acknowledged the mistake, but contends it was an inadvertent procedural error.
