    Police arrested Dennis Duby, 31, of Poultney on Saturday night and charged him with 2nd degree murder in the death of 2-year-old Dezirae Sheldon. Duby is the girl's stepfather, according to police.

    Duby was lodged for lack of $250,000 bail at the Rutland jail, and is scheduled to be arraigned Monday in Rutland Criminal Court.
