STILLWATER, Oklahoma -

A new judge has been appointed in the trial of a woman accused of crashing into a crowd of people at the OSU Homecoming Parade, killing four and injuring dozens of others.

Adacia Chambers was due in court Monday in Stillwater. She's been jailed on $1 million bond since the Oct. 24 crash.

Special Judge Katherine R. Thomas, who was previously appointed to this case, recused herself in the proceedings because she personally knows a victim in the crash.
