STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) – Oklahoma police say a 25-year-old woman arrested after a car crashed into a crowd at a parade and killed four people is now being held on four charges of second-degree murder.

Adacia Avery Chambers initially was held on a charge of driving while under the influence. But Stillwater, Oklahoma, police said late on Sunday that the second-degree murder charges were added.

Three adults were pronounced dead at the scene of the Oklahoma State University homecoming parade and a 2-year-old boy died later at a hospital from injuries. Dozens more were injured.

Chambers will have an initial court appearance on Monday, police say.
