STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) – A woman accused of driving her car into Oklahoma State’s homecoming parade, killing four people and injuring dozens, is due in court for a formal arraignment.

Last month, Adacia Chambers waived her right for a preliminary hearing during which a judge would have determined if there was enough evidence for the case to move forward. Chambers is charged with four counts of second-degree murder and more than 40 counts of assault and battery for the Oct. 24 crash at Oklahoma State.

Prosecutors allege that Chambers intentionally drove her car into the large crowd of spectators. Her attorney, Tony Coleman, has said his client is mentally ill.

Chambers is expected to enter a plea Wednesday to the charges. No trial date has been set.
