Waukesha Attack Suspect Darrell Brooks Charged, Bail Set at $5 Million


Darrell E. Brooks Jr., the lone suspect in the Waukesha Christmas parade massacre, was charged with five counts of first-degree intentional homicide on Tuesday, with bail set for $5 million cash.

Prosecutors outlined the charges on Tuesday afternoon during Brooks’ first court appearance following the horrific attack where he learned of a sixth fatality – an 8-year-old boy named Jackson Sparks, who died Tuesday from injuries sustained during the massacre.

Here are the names of the confirmed victims:

1.) Wilhelm Hospel, age 81

2.) Virginia “Ginny” Sorenson, age
