A woman charged with driving into a crowd and killing four people during Oklahoma State's homecoming parade has been found competent to stand trial.

A Payne County judge issued the ruling in the case of 25-year-old Adacia Chambers after receiving a report on her competency. Chambers had been sent to the Oklahoma Forensic Center to determine whether she understood the charges and could assist in her defense.

Chambers faces four counts of second-degree murder and 46 counts of assault in the Oct. 24 crash that prosecutors say was intentional.

Defense attorney Tony Coleman has said Chambers is mentally ill. He requested a report by a psychologist who found that she was mentally ill.

Coleman said Thursday that he reserves the right to revisit the competency issue.
