STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) – The attorney for a woman charged with second-degree murder in the car crash that killed four people and injured dozens during Oklahoma State University’s homecoming parade is asking a judge to lift a gag order in the case.

Tony Coleman, the attorney for Adacia Chambers, the woman charged in the Oct. 24 crash, says in a Tuesday court filing that a gag order would restrict free speech. Coleman also says nothing the media has reported about the crash would affect Chambers’ ability to be tried by an impartial jury.

Judge Louis A. Duel put the gag in place last week barring lawyers, witnesses, victims and family members from making any statements about the case.

Duel indicated then he might lift the gag based on Coleman’s response.
