STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) -- Amended charges have been filed against the woman charged with crashing her car into spectators at the Oklahoma State homecoming parade -- killing four and injuring dozens.
 
The charges against Adacia Chambers announced late Tuesday by Payne County District Attorney Laura Austin Thomas include four counts of second-degree murder and 42 counts of assault and battery -- less than the 46 counts filed initially. 
 
Thomas had said she expected to file about 12 new charges and dismiss two others against Chambers because additional victims had been located and at least two people who were initially thought to be victims were not injured in the crash.
 
It wasn't clear whether victims had been added or dropped and a phone call to Thomas' office was not answered.
 
Chambers' attorney says Chambers is mentally ill.
