GREELEY, Colo. (AP) -- A preliminary hearing has been scheduled on March 19 for the mother of a 3-year-old Frederick boy who accidentally shot himself in the head.

The Greeley Tribune reports 32-year-old Dione Warren appeared in court Friday on a charge of criminally negligent child abuse resulting in death. Weld County District Attorney Ken Buck has said the woman was negligent for leaving her son alone at home where he could access a deadly weapon.

According to police and court records, Warren's son, Sheine Steine, shot himself in October after finding a handgun between the mattress and the frame of a bed.

Warren has posted bail.
