Prosecutor: Seal mental health records in parade crash

STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) – A prosecutor wants a judge to seal the mental health records of a woman charged with driving a car into the Oklahoma State University homecoming parade, killing four people and injuring dozens.

A motion filed Friday by District Attorney Laura Austin Thomas says the attorney for Adacia Chambers appears to be trying to prejudice potential jurors by publicly discussing Chambers’ mental health.

Thomas also criticized defense attorney Tony Coleman for attaching to a motion a psychologist’s report about the mental health and competency of Chambers.

Coleman declined to comment on Saturday.

Both the defense and prosecution have requested a competency hearing for Chambers, who faces four counts of second-degree murder and 46 counts of assault and battery for the October 24th crash. Chambers is jailed on $1 million bond.
