DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (WIAT) – The lawyer for Ebony Wilkerson, the Florida mother accused of driving a van into the ocean with her kids inside, says she was suffering from low blood sugar at the time.
Wilkerson’s blood was tested at the time of the incident. The public defender believes her undetected hypoglycemia may have led her to behave erratically.
On Friday a hearing will be held to discuss the issue. Wilkerson was seven months pregnant when police say she drove her van into the ocean off the coast of Daytona Beach, Florida.
She has been charged with three counts of attempted murder.
