After weeks of publicity, a judge has issued a gag order in the case of the woman suspected of driving her car into a crowd of spectators at the Oklahoma State University Homecoming Parade.

Adacia Avery Chambers made her second appearance in court to be arraigned on four counts of second degree murder and 46 counts of assault, but while she was there, District Judge Louis Duel also ruled on motions filed by the prosecution.

Prosecutors had requested a gag order in the case and for Chambers’ health records to be sealed. In both motions , they cited extensive publicity about the case including the release of documents from an October psychological evaluation.

The judge agreed to grant the gag order and seal the mental health records. He also ordered Chambers to be sent to the Oklahoma Forensic Center for further psychological evaluation.

The next hearing in the case is scheduled for December 10.
