Okla. crash suspect held on 2nd-degree murder charges.

Stillwater, Oklahoma – An Oklahoma woman was charged on Sunday with four counts of second-degree murder a day after she allegedly crashed the car she was driving into a crowd at an Oklahoma State University homecoming parade, killing four people and injuring dozens, police said. I’m not a psychologist or psychiatrist, but I can tell you she’s suffering from mental illness,” Coleman said. “All I remember was a gush of wind and then the sound,” Mark McNitt said at a news conference, recalling when the vehicle jumped the curb, mowing down dozens of men, women and children. In a statement on Sunday, police identified the three adults who were killed as Nakita Prabhakar, 23, of Edmond, Oklahoma; Bonnie Jean Stone, 65; and Marvin Lyle Stone, 65, both of Stillwater.

Payne County District Attorney Laura Austin Thomas earlier on Sunday told The Oklahoman that Chambers would likely be charged with driving under the influence of drugs. Prabhakar, originally from Mumbai, India, was a graduate business student at the University of Central Oklahoma in Edmond, the school said, identifying her as Nikita Nakal. He said Chambers’ behavior when he spoke to her “was not consistent with someone coming out of an alcoholic stupor.” He said family members who were with her late Friday did not see her consume any alcohol.

He described her as “timid” and said she had attended homecoming festivities Friday night with family, but her boyfriend told him she was home by 10 p.m. The homecoming game against Kansas was played as scheduled, players bowing their heads in prayer as the American flag fluttered at half-staff in Boone Pickens Stadium under orders from Gov. We are definitely subdued in mood and we’re still trying to understand.” Oklahoma State’s homecoming famously attracts huge crowds to Stillwater each year.
