DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — The South Carolina woman accused of trying to kill her three children by driving her minivan into the Atlantic Ocean off Daytona Beach wants to see them.

Circuit Judge Leah Case will hear the request Friday morning. The judge barred Ebony Wilkerson from having any contact with the children during a hearing in May.

The Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, woman was pregnant when she drove into the water on March 4. Her children told investigators she was trying to kill them. Attorneys say she hasn't seen the children since.

Wilkerson gave birth to a baby boy in May.

The Daytona Beach News-Journal ( ) reports Wilkerson is out of jail while awaiting trial on $90,000 bail. She's charged with three counts each of attempted second-degree murder and child abuse.
