Weld County DA


Greeley, CO – The mother of a 3-year-old who accidentally shot himself in Frederick has been charged with Criminally Negligent Child Abuse Resulting in Death.

Dione Warren turned herself in on the Class 3 felony Monday night.

Warren summoned emergency crews to her home in the 500 block of Pine Street the morning of Oct. 28 and reported finding her son, Sheine Steine, lying on the ground in her bedroom, unresponsive and bleeding from the head, according to police and court records. An autopsy ruled that the child had accidentally shot himself in the head with his stepfather’s gun.

The child found the gun between the mattress and frame of the bed after Warren left him home alone while she took her older daughter to school, according to the investigation.
