PAYNE COUNTY, Oklahoma -

A psych evaluation requested by the defense team of a driver accused in the deadly crash at the OSU Homecoming parade, stated that she showed “severe signs of mental illness” that would impair her competency.

According to a letter sent to Chambers’ lawyer, Tony Coleman, by the psychologist, the evaluation was conducted at the Payne County Detention Center on October 26, totaling about an hour and half and including a clinical interview, competency evaluation, test of memory malingering, mini mental state examination (second edition,) and attempted completion of the symptom Checklist-90-Revised.

The letter states that Chambers’ speech had a normal rate and volume. Its content ranged from rational and coherent, to disorganized and delusional. Her eye contact was good and her cooperation was excellent.

The document states that Chambers believed the current year to be 2016. She was aware she was in a detention center, but she was unaware of why she was there, and that she was not grounded in reality. She was frequently making inappropriate religious references.

During the examination, Chambers reportedly said that she was “talking to Jesus,” and suggested that the psychologist was Jesus. She also talked about how she was to marry "Jesus" or "God." She was unable to described why she was in jail, asking, “is it because of something I didn’t do or did do? I think it’s because of something I didn’t do.”

Chambers indicated during the examination that she had a history of mental health treatment. When the psychologist asked about the reason she sought such treatment, she said, “Because I felt something was wrong. I think God had called me back because he was alone, but he wasn’t alone and he realized it. So now we could be together.”
