A woman accused of driving her car into Oklahoma State's homecoming parade, killing four people and injuring dozens, has pleaded not guilty to the charges against her.
Adacia Chambers entered her plea Wednesday in Payne County District Court after previously waiving her right to a preliminary hearing.
The 25-year-old Chambers is charged with four counts of second-degree murder and more than 40 counts of assault and battery for the Oct. 24 crash.
Prosecutors say Chambers intentionally drove her car around a barricade and into spectators at the parade. Her attorney, Tony Coleman, says his client is mentally ill.
China urged people in the United States to take a rational and objective view of the relationship between the two countries, as Republican front-runner Donald Trump all but-clinched the party's presidential nomination on Tuesday, NBC News reported. Over the course of his campaign, Trump has repeatedly attacked China, saying its trade policies are "killing" America, its currency devaluations will "suck the blood out" of the United States and this week accused the country of "raping" the States. Though China's state media has largely avoided responding to Trump's attacks, it seems the rest of the country may have missed the memo. The South China Morning Post referred to Trump Wednesday as a "brash man with no political experience" while the Global Times called him a "rich narcissist" and a "racist." The criticism is unlikely to dent Trump's celebrity status in China or deter the legions of fans on social media.

The Connecticut woman who underwent a face transplant five years ago after being attacked by a chimpanzee is back in a Boston hospital after doctors discovered her body is rejecting the transplant.
Charla Nash said doctors have decided to end an experimental drug treatment and put her back on her original medication in the hopes of reversing the rejection.
Nash had been taking part in a military-funded experiment in which doctors at Boston's Brigham and Women's Hospital tried to wean her off the anti-rejection drugs she had been taking since the 2011 operation.
Kenya National Police Service
Kenyan police said Wednesday they have foiled a "large-scale" biological attack using anthrax by an ISIS-linked terror group, NBC News reported.
Mohammed Abdi Ali, an intern at a hospital in the south of the country, is accused of radicalizing and recruiting university students and other young people into "terrorism networks," Kenya's National Police Service said in a statement.
Ali was arrested under the country's terror laws in connection with the alleged plan, the statement said.
Police added that Ali's wife, Nuseiba Mohammed Haji — a student at Uganda's Kampala International University — and her alleged "accomplice," Fatuma Mohammed Hanshi, were also arrested in Uganda.

More than 120 children may have received too much laughing gas during recent procedures at a University of Iowa clinic, the school said Monday.
Patients who received treatment at the school's pediatric dentistry clinic in Iowa City between March 1 and April 20 have an "extremely small risk" of suffering any long-term health effects, the school said.
Associate dean for patient care Michael Kanellis said the university is unaware of what any long-term effects would be but wanted to be "very cautious and proactive" in the interest of patient safety. To that end, the dental school said that it was notifying affected families so that they could seek the appropriate evaluation and treatment, if necessary.
Hulu will offer a live-streaming service in 2017 that will provide a mix of cable and broadcast programming as well as news, sports and events.
That pits the streaming service against similar offerings from Dish's Sling TV and Sony's PlayStation Vue as more and more Americans shift to watching TV online.
CEO Mike Hopkins confirmed the news at a presentation in New York on Wednesday but gave few specifics.
"Very soon, fans will be able to enjoy favorite shows and cheer for favorite teams, all on Hulu," in a "deeply personalized experience," he said.
U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren blasted Republican front-runner Donald Trump after his victory Tuesday in Indiana, saying the billionaire businessman has more support from the KKK than the GOP.
"There's more enthusiasm for @realDonaldTrump among leaders of the KKK than leaders of the party he now controls," Warren, a Massachusetts Democrat, tweeted after Trump was declared the winner of Indiana's primary and rival Ted Cruz ended his bid for the White House.
Warren criticized Trump for "[building] his campaign on racism, sexism, and xenophobia."
A 24-year-old Southern California artist who painted a portrait of Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump in the nude said she was punched in the face by an attacker who yelled "Trump 2016."
The Los Angeles Police Department was investigating the assault Tuesday, but Illma Gore said the attack wasn't the first she has dealt with since painting Trump in a portrait depicting the GOP front-runner with small genitals.
"I have received threats of violence and people say they were coming to kill me," Gore said.
On Friday, Gore was suddenly confronted by a violent, shirtless stranger in broad daylight.
"All I could hear was 'Trump 2016,'" Gore said.
A group of men traveling in a black Honda Civic stopped beside her on the sidewalk, according to Gore.
"He got out and punched me in the face and said 'Trump 2016' — then he drove off," Gore said.

Bernie Sanders' upset victory Tuesday in the Indiana primary shows Democrats are not quite ready to name Hillary Clinton the nominee.
Every time the race seems headed to the finish, voters decide to extend it, as they did in Michigan in March, NBC News reported. Sanders' win does nothing to knock Clinton off her glidepath to the nomination, since the few delegates he picks will barely dent her massive 300-plus pledged delegate lead.
But it will be a much-needed fundraising and momentum boost to a fading candidate who has pledged to stay in the race until the Democratic National Convention in July, even though his only path to victory involves improbable landslides and fanciful schemes to flip superdelegates.
Clinton's campaign and nervous Democratic leaders may now reassess their indifferent attitude to Sanders. They had hoped for a head start on Trump, but the Republican will instead have the drop on them and Clinton will face incoming attacks on both sides.

U.S. auto safety regulators are in talks with Takata Corp. to add tens of millions of air bag inflators to what already is the biggest auto recall in American history, three people briefed on the matter said Tuesday.
The government's National Highway Traffic Safety Administration wants the Japanese company to agree to a recall that could more than double the 28.8 million Takata inflators that already must be replaced, according to the people who requested anonymity because talks are still ongoing. An announcement could come as soon as Wednesday.
Unlike most air bag makers, Takata's inflators use the chemical ammonium nitrate to fill air bags in a crash. But they can explode with too much force.
If you see an armed jogger in Mount Airy, Pennsylvania, these days, it's not a "run-by" in progress.
He's trying to make a point.
James Moody, 49, who lives in the neighborhood and comes from a self-described "firearms family," said he began jogging with a handgun at his hip a couple months ago.
One police officer walking the beat in the 14th District thought it jarring enough to stop Moody mid-run Monday — and the first 15 minutes of the encounter were caught on video shot by Moody's Go-Pro.
"Clearly, the officers don’t know the laws that Philadelphia is governed by. They had no clue about what is lawful and unlawful," said Moody. "You can, under Title 18 Section 6108, open carry a firearm."
The U.S. Attorney's Office in Minneapolis is joining the investigation into the death of famed singer Prince, according to NBC News.
"The US Attorney’s Office and DEA are joining the Carver County Sheriff’s investigation," the office's spokesperson said. "The DEA and US Attorney’s Office are able to augment this local investigation with federal resources and expertise about prescription drug diversion. While this remains an ongoing investigation, we will have no further comment.”

It's a rock for the ages.
A 3-billion-year-old diamond the size of a tennis ball — the largest discovered in over a century — could sell for more than $70 million, auctioneer Sotheby's said Wednesday.
The auction house plans to offer the Lesedi la Rona diamond in London on June 29.
The diamond was unearthed in November in Botswana at a mine owned by Canada's Lucara Diamond Corporation. It measured 1,109 carats, the second-largest gem-quality rough diamond ever discovered. Its name means "our light" in the Tswana language of southern Africa.
