STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) – A judge has ordered a psychological examination for a woman charged with murder in the car crash at Oklahoma State University’s homecoming parade that killed four people and injured dozens more.

During a hearing Monday, Judge Louis A. Duel stayed the proceedings against 25-year-old Adacia Chambers and ordered her committed for a psychological examination at a state facility. He put the proceedings on hold until Dec. 10.

The judge also issued a gag order in the case keeping lawyers, witnesses, victims and family members from making any statements outside court.

Duel also ordered Chambers’ medical records sealed, saying it was necessary to protect the integrity of the case.
