OSU Victim Memorial

A retired Oklahoma State University professor and his wife were among the four people killed when a driver plowed through a crowd of spectators at OSU's homecoming parade, according to police.

Marvin Stone, Ph.D., and his wife, Bonnie Jean Stone, were "wonderful individuals," Dan Thomas, the head of the Biosystems and Agricultural Engineering department at OSU, told NBC News Sunday. "They mentored many others, and were very giving spirits."

University of Central Oklahoma was mourning the death of 23-year-old master’s student Nakita Prabhakar, who was also killed in the tragedy. A two-year-old boy, who has not been identified, died in the hospital from injuries sustained in the crash.

Adacia Chambers, 25, was arrested at the scene and charged with driving under the influence. Police said they were investigating the incident as a homicide and additional charges would be presented to the Payne County District Court.
