Waukesha Christmas parade suspect facing dozens of new charges in amended complaint
Brooks' charges now include:
- First-degree intentional homicide (six counts)
- First-degree recklessly endangering safety (61 counts)
- Hit and run resulting in death (six counts)
- Felony bail jumping (two counts)
- Misdemeanor battery (two counts)
The original six first-degree intentional homicide charges were for those victims that died. Most of the new charges detail the dozens of injuries suffered along the parade route.
One family said they’re happy all the victims are now recognized, but they add it's possible no amount of justice may ever fully heal the pain.
