Darrell E. Brooks, the main suspect in last year’s Waukesha, Wisconsin, Christmas parade massacre is now facing 71 fresh charges after prosecutors filed an amended complaint on Wednesday.
Brooks Jr., 39, was facing already six counts of homicide in the deaths of those killed when he smashed into the parade in an SUV on Nov. 21, as Breitbart News reported.
Most of the new charges against Brooks are for recklessly endangering safety by use of a dangerous weapon, according to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.
The expanded charges include 61 counts of 1st degree recklessly endangering safety, six counts of hit-and-run involving death, two bail jumping felonies, and two counts of misdemeanor domestic abuse charges.
In total, six people died in the incident on Nov. 21, including one young child.
