Judge declines to suppress statements in parade crash trial

A judge has declined to suppress statements made by a woman charged with crashing into spectators at the Oklahoma State homecoming parade and killing four.

The Payne County district judge on Tuesday turned down that request and others by attorneys for 26-year-old Adacia Chambers. Witnesses have said Chambers commented about being suicidal following the October 2015 crash.

Other motions denied include one to suppress autopsy photos of victims and to order the families of victims not to show emotion while in court.

Still pending is a request to move the trial out of Payne County.

Chambers faces four counts of second-degree murder and 42 counts of assault and battery. She has pleaded not guilty.
