There was similar carnage six years ago last month when Adacia Chambers, 今 31, plowed through the 2015 homecoming parade at オクラホマ State University.
Then-25-year-old Chambers drove a grey Hyundai Elantra through a red light and then a police barricade in Stillwater, オクラホマ, as spectators lined Main Street for a parade. An arrest affidavit states that once through the barricade, she sped into a parked police motorcycle without slowing down.
Witnesses reported seeing bodies thrown around “like rag dolls,” and she ultimately killed four people, including a 2-year-old, そして怪我をした 50, 当局によると.
The dead were 23-year-old student Nakita Prabhakar Nakal; Bonnie Jean and Marvin Lyle Stone, どちらも 65; and Nash Lucas, the toddler son of an OSU student.
Nine of the surviving victims were under 10 年, including at least one additional toddler, the Associated Press reported at the time.
Chambers is serving a life sentence in prison after pleading no contest to four counts of second-degree murder and dozens of assault charges in 2017, 裁判所の記録は示しています.
Chambers’ defense attorney, Tony Coleman, said Chambers was struggling with mental illness at the time of the incident. Chambers told police after the carnage that she was having suicidal thoughts, 宣誓供述書によると.
Brooks also faces life in prison if convicted in Sunday’s Christmas parade carnage in Waukesha, ウィスコンシン.
While fleeing from an apparent domestic incident, he allegedly slammed through a barricade and then swerved into a crowd of people on Main Street, killing five adults and an 8-year-old and injuring 62, 当局によると.
ブルックス, a longtime convicted felon with a 50-page rap sheet, had been released from a Milwaukee jail just days before the parade attack on just $ 1,000 寄託. Even District Attorney John Chisholm called that sum “不適切に低い” and launched an internal investigation into his own office for recommending it.
