February 16th, 2008, 01:36 PM
I have been following this since November. A 911 call alerted police to "unresponsive" kids. One was dead, another was in an obvious drug daze. Its take 4 months but the mother of the dead 4 year old has been charged with 4 counts of endangerment, bond set at 100k.
Police are searching for possible accomplices, namely the child's aunt and uncle.

A few new details from www.kmov.com
Liles left her four children with her sister Fredrica Liles who was babysitting the sibling, and now is wanted on several charges including drug induced homicide.
She is accused giving her 4-year-old niece and the child's brothers prescription medication, because she says the children would not go to sleep.
The children's mother was arrested Friday afternoon without incident.
Autopsy results show that the 4-year-old died of a drug overdose.
Police are still searching for Fredrica and her boyfriend Pernell Hampton in connection with the drug induced homicide.

An unusually groggy 2-year-old boy, Twanna Lyles' son, was also rescued from the home by police and later collapsed in an ambulance. The boy was in critical condition for a time at a St. Louis hospital, but has since recovered
