STILLWATER, Okla. – The woman accused of driving her vehicle into a crowd of people, injuring dozens and killing four, plead not guilty during her court arraignment on Wednesday.

The pre-trial date for Adacia Chambers has been set for June 1st. During the arraignment, the state said it plans to call more than 100 witnesses and reconstruct the crash scene from last October. The state went on to say that the  trial should commence this year but believes October should be avoided to not overlap the anniversary date of the wreck.

On the other side, the defense filed a motion related to the state’s discovery. They believe that it will take more time to pour through all of it, as well as witnesses, before being ready to go to trial.

Adacia Chambers, 25, is charged with second-degree murder and more than 40 counts of assault and battery in the Oct. 24 crash that prosecutors say was intentional.
