Outrage over toddler's death

Outrage over toddler's death

Outrage is spreading across the country tonight after the tragic death of a 2-year-old girl who didn't have to die.  31-year-old Dennis Duby is charged with 2nd degree murder in the brutal death of his stepdaughter Dezirae Sheldon.  She was killed just 3 days after her second birthday.  He's currently behind bars; bail has been set at $250,000.

But outraged critics say there's another monster in this horror story who is still on the loose-- Dezirae's own mother Sandra Eastman.  Eastman served 5 months in jail in 2008 for molesting a 15-year-old boy and becoming pregnant with his child.  Less than a year ago, Eastman was convicted of child cruelty after waiting a week to bring Dezirae to the hospital after the child suffered a broken leg.  Eastman avoided jail and was sentenced only to probation.  Dezirae was put right back in her custody just 2 months later.  Eastman’s desperate family claims they begged the court not to restore custody, warning that she was unstable and violent.  Eastman’s own sister even started an online petition as a last ditch effort to get this child away from her sister.
