SC woman who drove into ocean seeks bail reduction

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - The newborn child of a woman accused driving her minivan into the Atlantic Ocean with three other children inside is in South Carolina with the father.

Meanwhile, attorneys for Ebony Wilkerson of North Charleston, South Carolina, will seek Thursday to either have her released on her own recognizance or get her $1.2 million bail reduced.

The Daytona Beach News-Journal ( ) reports that a motion says the father, Lutful Ronjon, has returned to South Carolina with the baby, who was born May 20. Wilkerson's other children are being sheltered by the Florida Department of Children and Families.

Wilkerson's been in custody since three days after driving into the ocean. Rescuers rushed to get the children out of the van.

Wilkerson is charged with three counts each of attempted murder and child abuse.
