The woman accused of killing four people and injuring more than a dozen people at Oklahoma State University's Oct. 24 homecoming parade was not intoxicated during the time of the incident.

BAC Findings Leave Questions as to the Cause of the Fatal Accident

Adacia Avery Chambers, 25, had a blood alcohol content below the minimum level according to court papers.

Reuters reports that Chambers’ defense attorney filed a brief on Thursday with the Payne County District Court which stated Chambers had her blood drawn on the day of the accident with reuslts showing a blood alcohol content of 0.01 percent.

The police department in Stillwater, Oklahoma is not able to comment specifically on the case or the accuracy of the brief's contents due to a gag order.

However, the suspect's father, Floyd Chambers, and her attorney have said she has a history of mental illness and sought treatment twice in recent years.

Chambers is facing four counts of second-degree murder and 46 counts of assault and battery. She is being held on a $1 million bond and is due back in court on Dec. 10.
