A 24-year-old mother is accused of enabling abuse that led to her 4-year-old son's death in Burnsville.
    
The St. Paul Pioneer Press reports Sha'reese Monique Miller was charged Monday with three counts of second-degree manslaughter.
    
The boy, Key'ontay Miller Peterson, was found dead June 11.
    
Prosecutors say she put her son in danger by allowing him to be around the man charged with fatally abusing him, letting the abuse continue and not seeking medical care for injuries that caused his death.
    
The man is her 25-year-old boyfriend, William Alphonso Warr, who was charged Jan. 21 with first-degree murder.
    
Warr wasn't supposed to have contact with Miller or her children because of prior domestic abuse. Miller is due in court Feb. 24.
