    Stepfather pleads not guilty in 2-year-old’s death
    Loved ones point fingers at DCF

    UPDATED 4:29 PM EST Feb 24, 2014

    RUTLAND, Vt. —Dennis Duby, 31, of Poultney, Vt., denied a second-degree murder charge Monday in connection with the death of his 2-year-old stepdaughter, Dezirae Sheldon. Duby is jailed pending $250,000 bail, set by Vt. Superior Court Judge Theresa DiMauro.

    Before the hearing, dozens rallied on the sidewalks and in the streets of Rutland, speaking up for little Dezirae. "No child should have to endure what that child has gone through," said demonstrator Amanda Withington, who said she is a friend of Sheldon's aunt. "No child."

    The toddler died last week at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon, N.H. She was transferred there after Sheldon was brought to the emergency room at the Rutland Regional Medical Center with severe head injuries.

    Dezirae Sheldon

    This poor angel. A year ago, her mother was charged with abuse when Dezirae was taken to the hospital with two broken legs!

    Governor Shumlin ordered a DCF probe.

    This is heartbreaking. I'm glad the Governor has ordered an independent review of DCF.

    Her own mother was convicted of abusing her when she was only 11 months old - broke both her little legs! A recommendation was made to place the baby in foster care. It's not clear whether or not that recommendation was followed. If it wasn't, DCF screwed up big time and now a precious baby has been murdered.

    She died as the result of a fractured skull, according to one of the articles.

    Both her mother and stepfather are monsters.

    Oh my gosh. These are the hardest cases for me. The ones where it's pretty clear that this sweet baby girl probably never felt safe, never felt loved and adored, never felt anything but pain and fear. What a tragic life. How scary must it be, when this is all you've ever known? Who did she turn to for comfort? Did she have anyone?

    I cried when I saw this. This little girl never had a chance. How many people would have loved to have that child? Lots. These people should face the death penalty.

    They both should get the death penalty ! That mother had a hand in her death, she abused her before.That poor child another failure from DCP ! They rarely save a child but IMO help to let many children die horrible deaths! I am glad the Governor is having an independent investigation ,hopefully it will open up the real problems that keep allowing babies and children to be murdered! Biggest problem IMO No one over sees DCP, nor is any policing agency even the FBI above them which is why it has such a epic failure rate. No agency should be policing itself especially when WE the taxpayers are funding them. It seems they take away children from some without good cause and leave many at risk children with abusers.

    Disgusting. This poor little angel never got to learn how amazing life can be. These POS need to rot in jail forever, for taking away every single moment this sweet girl had in front of her.

    Fly high, sweet Dezirae. Such a beautiful name for a darling little girl.

    There are no words to describe the anger I feel.

    I mean they had a petition up BEFORE DEZIRAE WAS KILLED SAYING SHE NEEDED TO REMOVED OR SHE WOULD BE KILLED.

    Lisa Eastman Dezirae's aunt is the one who put up the petition asking that Dezirae not be given back to her mother. All before she was killed
    http://www.change.org/petitions/justice-for-dezirae

    I don't think I have ever seen a more egregious case of neglect by the DFS and any other person in authority who saw this file on Dezirae and did nothing.

    This infuriates me!!!!!

    What the H#$$ is happening to people? Is there some kind of epidemic of child abuse, torture and murder? There is no sanctity in human life? Why can't we as a society protect our children?

    Will listen to Tricia broadcast Thurs at 8 p.m. EST. and get angry all over again, but I want to at least do something by bearing witness.

    Hi again, (((((Chelly))))!!

    I stuck around and listened to sweet Lisa talking to Tricia about her niece, Dezirae. And I'll ask the what-is-becoming-a-universal-question: What is wrong with people? Yes, a crying child is annoying, but in this case, did the little girl already have something to cry about? Had he already hurt her & then ... ?

    And Lisa even started a petition since she was in such fear about her 2 nieces. Where is the other niece/daughter? I'm late in joining this case, so please forgive my ignorance of the details of this case.

    Thanks for listening with me!!

    And a BIG thanks to Tricia!!!!
