VOLUSIA COUNTY, S.C. — The South Carolina mother accused of trying to kill her three kids by driving her van into the ocean in Daytona Beach, Fla., in March has given birth to another child.

Ebony Wilkerson, 32, has already turned the baby over to family members.

Wilkerson was charged with three counts of attempted first-degree murder as a result of the incident in March.

Attorneys are attempting to prove that Wilkerson has a psychotic disorder. Based on statements made by Wilkerson’s sister, Wilkerson may have thought she was protecting the children from “demons” and “taking them to a better place.”
