Sommer Wilford scheduled to appear in court Wednesday

Shelby County Jail

SHELBY CO. (WIAT) — A Shelby county woman charged in the death of her son will be in court on Wednesday. Sommer Wilford is scheduled for a preliminary hearing Wednesday morning.

Wilford is charged with reckless murder for a car crash that killed her 19-month-old son back in February. Police say she crashed her car in Alabaster and never told emergency crews that her young son was still inside the burning vehicle.

Prosecutors believe Wilford was under the influence at the time.
