The attorney for the Spirit Lake woman whose child endangerment conviction was reaffirmed Thursday plans to appeal that ruling. Heidi Watkins’ two-year-old daughter, Shelby Duis, was beaten to death in January. Larry Stoller, Watkins’ lawyer, says they’re disappointed with the ruling and are reviewing it. The defense team plans to file motions prior to Watkins’ sentencing on December 28th.Watkins faces a maximum of 50 years in prison. Stoller hopes “the county attorney will honor his commitment to continue his investigation of Jesse Wendelsdorf.” Wendelsdorf is Watkins’ former live-in boyfriend who was cleared of all charges in the case, including murder and sexual abuse.
