Hanover mom accused of attacking son with an axe goes to court

Posted: Updated:
HANOVER, VA (WWBT) -

A Hanover mom accused of attacking her son with an axe is due in court Thursday to learn if there's enough evidence to bring her to trial.

The courtroom is expected to hear about evidence prosecutors will most likely say is enough to bring mother of three, Kimberly Shepperson to trial.

Prosecutors say Shepperson tried to burn down her house with her three kids inside.

An investigator says Shepperson confessed at VCU Medical Center. Evidence seized from the scene includes blades, lighters, and a gas can. 

A warrant says Shepperson gave her son a prescription sleeping drug. The last line of one of the reports says, "the intent of the fire was to cause death."

Shepperson's case is scheduled to take place at 2 p.m.
