Accused killer Darrell Brooks has been slapped with 71 new charges in the Waukesha Christmas parade attack according to Fox News.
The amended complaint was filed on Wednesday and included 61 counts of 1st degree recklessly endangering safety along with six counts of hit-and-run involving death, two bail jumping felonies, and two counts of misdemeanor domestic abuse charges.
According to the publication, Brooks now faces 77 charges in all, including six counts of first-degree intentional homicide for the Nov. 23, event that ended in the deaths of five adults and one child.
Brooks is accused of intentionally driving his Ford Escape into a crowd at a Christmas parade in Waukesha. The accused argues that it was an unintentional collision.
Additionally, the defendant is believed to have been fleeing the scene of a domestic incident at the time that the alleged attack took place.
Wilhelm Hospel, 81, Virginia Sorenson, 79; LeAnna Owen, 71; Tamara Durand, 52, Jane Kulich, 52, and Jackson Sparks, 8, were killed due to Brooks alleged actions.
“Brooks is scheduled to appear in court on Friday for a preliminary hearing in the case,” Fox News reported. “Brooks has a criminal record dating back to 1999, and was convicted of statutory sexual seduction 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 her and using his car to run over her, which was the same vehicle used in the Waukesha attack.”
Brooks was allegedly out on $1,000 bail requested by a junior prosecutor after he allegedly used his red Ford Escape to run over his ex-girlfriend on Nov. 3. The defendant posted $500 and was set free in another incident where he allegedly shot his nephew in the summer of 2020.
