Mother Who Attempted to Kill Children to Learn Fate Friday

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — A woman who authorities say tried to kill her children by driving them and herself into the ocean in Florida will return to court Friday to find out if a judge will send her back to a psychiatric hospital.

Ebony Wilkerson of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, appeared before a judge Monday. She stood trial for the attempted murder of her three young children after authorities say she drove into the Atlantic Ocean just off of Daytona Beach in 2014. She was found not guilty by reason of insanity on three charges of child neglect and child endangerment.

Wilkerson could have her conditional release revoked after she stopped taking her medication while staying at Lake Wales Care Center. Wilkerson suffered a psychiatric episode in May as a result of being off of her medication.

Prosecutors have filed a motion to have Wilkerson sent back to a psychiatric hospital.
