Minivan Mom Bond Hearing

FLORIDA - The lawyers for a woman accused of trying to kill her three kids by driving a minivan into the ocean want her to be transferred to a mental health unit.

The attorney for Ebony Wilkerson made the request at a bond hearing.

Wilkerson is currently in solitary confinement at a psychiatric unit, for security reasons.

Her lawyers want her admitted to the general ward where she can interact and see a doctor for her mental health issues, and also be close to an OBGYN because of her pregnancy.

The judge did not make a decision on the request. Another hearing is scheduled for next week.
