    UPDATE at 10:30 a.m.: According to her attorney, Gardner will forego a preliminary hearing and the case will go to a Grand Jury. 


    The mother accused of killing her four children in Southeast Shelby County last month will be in court Wednesday

    Shanynthia Gardner is scheduled for a preliminary hearing.

    Gardner's children ranged from four years old to just six months.

    The sheriff's office said they found a large butcher knife with blood on it when they searched her apartment early last month.

    A 7-year-old was also inside the apartment at the time of the murder, but was able to escape.
