Juliette Geurts was found dead in 2008 in the small town of Gering in western Nebraska. This week, a grand jury indicted Dustin Chauncey with manslaughter and child abuse.
At the time of the girl's death, he was dating Juliette's mom, Charyse Geurts. She has been charged as being an accessory and slowing the police investigation.
According to a friend, the night the girl died Chauncey and Geurts spent the night partying.
The 2-year-old's aunt, Monica Hall, has been on a crusade since the girl's death, trying to find Justice for Juliette.
Chauncey is scheduled to be sentenced Friday afternoon in Boulder County on weapons and drug charges.
Hall is concerned he could be released from jail before officials in Nebraska issue a warrant for his arrest.
