BRATTLEBORO — A Vermont judge blocked prosecutors a year ago from obtaining or using the medical records of a former nursing assistant who was found not guilty  Friday of murdering a Brattleboro woman. 

Those records may have included that Jodi LaClaire, 39, of Bennington, N.H., was an insulin-dependent diabetic — a fact prosecutors say in court documents could have established her knowledge of insulin and placed it in her hands on the day of 83-year-old Nita Lowery's murder. Prosecutors with the Vermont Attorney General's Office alleged LaClaire killed Lowery, who was not diabetic, with a fatal dose of insulin in the spring of 2009.
