TULSA, OK -- A Tulsa mother now faces charges in connection with the death of her 4-year old son earlier this year.

Lakeisha Oliver has been charged with neglect in the death of Keyshawn Markham.

Emergency responders were called to a north Tulsa apartment in July, where they found the child unconscious.

The child later died at a Tulsa hospital.

The state Medical Examiner's Office says Keyshawn died of blunt force trauma to the abdomen and there was a long delay in getting him medical attention.

Terry Green, Oliver's boyfriend has already been charged with neglect and abuse in connection with this case.
