RUTLAND, Vt. (AP) - The man charged with second-degree murder in the death last year of his 2-year-old stepdaughter is accused of contacting his ex-wife in violation of a court order.

Dennis Duby has pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder in the February 2014 death of Dezirae Sheldon of Poultney who died of severe head trauma.

Police say Duby has been talking on the phone and sending letters to the child’s mother, Sandra Eastman-Duby, and had contact with her dating back to October 2014 when he was living in a court-ordered residence. They say she is pregnant and Dennis Duby is the suspected father.

Duby is expected to be arraigned on the suspected violation in May. It was not immediately known if he has a lawyer
