Police have charged Sheldon's step-father, 31-year-old Dennis Duby of Poultney, with second degree murder.
They say the two-year-old girl died on Friday of blunt force trauma to the head.
Duby is being held at Marble Regional Correctional Facility on $250,000 bail.
He'll be arraigned Monday in Rutland.
