POULTNEY, Vt. (AP) - A Poultney man charged in the death of his 2-year-old stepdaughter has been released on bail.

WCAX-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1izzyXT ) that 31-year-old Dennis Duby was released on Friday. He’s charged in the death of Dezirae Sheldon, who died in February after suffering severe head trauma.

Duby has pleaded not guilty to murder charges.

In response to the toddler’s death, the state has set up an independent panel to investigate the state’s role leading up to the death. Vermont lawmakers also have been reviewing child protection issues.
