DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - A pregnant South Carolina woman accused of driving her car into the ocean with her three children on board will be allowed to receive in-hospital psychiatric care until a doctor says she's fit to return to jail.

Attorneys for both sides announced the agreement during a 10-minute hearing on 32-year-old Ebony Wilkerson's bond Tuesday in Daytona Beach. It was a continuation of a hearing that began last week.

Judge Leah Case wanted to hear more testimony before making a decision.

Wilkerson's defense attorneys also agreed to withdraw a request to reduce her $1.2 million bond on six felony charges - including attempted murder.

They can refile it later. Wilkerson will also receive prenatal care and be allowed supervised exercise time.
