GREELEY - The mother of a 3-year-old who accidentally shot himself in Frederick was charged Tuesday with criminally negligent child abuse resulting in death.
Dione Warren turned herself in on Monday evening.
Warren called the police to her home in the 500 block of Pine Street the morning of Oct. 28 and said she found her son, Sheine Steine, lying on the ground on the floor in her bedroom.
According to police, her son was unresponsive and bleeding from the head.
An autopsy showed that Steine had accidentally shot himself in the head with his stepfather's gun.
He found the gun between the mattress and frame of the bed after his mother left him home alone. She was taking her older daughter to school at the time.
Warren is due in court Tuesday at 1 p.m. for a bond hearing.
