Waukesha Christmas Parade suspect Darrell Brooks charged with intentional murder

Brooks was previously charged with six counts of first-degree intentional murder on November 23, after allegedly driving his maroon Ford Escape into a crowd of people at a Christmas parade in Waukesha. At the time, he was reportedly on the run from the scene of a separate domestic incident.

A total of six people, including a small child, were killed in the incident that took place on November 21.

Wilhelm Hospel, 81, Virginia Sorenson, 79; Lianna Owen, 71; 52-year-old Tamara Durand, 52-year-old Jane Kulich and 8-year-old Jackson Sparks died.

Brooks is due to appear in court on Friday for a preliminary hearing in the case.

Brooks has a criminal record since 1999, and was convicted of statutory sexual solicitation in 2006 after having sex with a 15-year-old girl who later became pregnant.

He was out on $1,000 bail in November after a woman accused him of punching and using his car, which was the same vehicle used in the Waukesha attack.

On November 3, a junior prosecutor requested $1,000 in bail after Brooks allegedly used his red Ford Escape to crush his ex-girlfriend.
