Woman Accused Of Driving Her Car Into Lake & Killing Her Son Appears In Court

She's accused of driving a car into Lake Cumberland and killing her son.

A Wayne County judge doesn't want to make it any easier for Wynema Worley to get out of jail.

WYMT was in the courtroom when Worley's made her first court appearance since being charged with murder and her emotional outburst in court.

She entered the courtroom with little expression.

At first, attorneys discussed the charges. Count one...Worley is accused of murdering her son, eight year old Dylan Rambo.

Count two...criminal attempt to commit murder, because prosecutors say Worley's daughter was also in the car.

Commonwealth's Attorney Larry Rogers says a witness says that Worley intended to drive her car into Lake Cumberland, but he says that witness was not in the car.

"None of the indictment stemmed from any statement made by the daughter. The physical evidence, made by the defendant herself and the statement made by a 3rd party," Rogers said.

Then talk turned to bond. Worley says she can't get out on her $100,000cash or $200,000 property bond.

While attorneys were discussing bond, the prosecutor had his file open to a picture of Dylan Rambo's body and her attorneys say Wynema Worley saw it, too.

Judge Vernon Miniard refused to lower Worley's bond, stating the "gravity of the charges."

The Commonwealth's Attorney says he might change Worley's criminal attempt to commit murder charge later...after a request by Worley's attorney.
