Waukesha Parade Murder Suspect: Truth Behind the Murder
A court commissioner ruled on Friday that a Milwaukee man must go to trial for allegedly cultivating an SUV through a suburban Christmas Procession, killing six people and injuring scores.
According to the prosecution, there is “ample” evidence that Darrel books Jr. Kevin Costello, a country court commissioner in Waukesha, made the statement at the conclusion of a preliminary hearing. Judges determine whether sufficient evidence exists to commit offenders to custody until trial during that criminal justice process. Brooks is accused of 77 offenses, including six counts of murder and numerous instances of reckless endangerment. He would be sentenced to life in prison if he were found guilty of any homicide accusations.
Only one witness was called by the district attorney, Thomas Casey of the police. In his testimony, he claimed that on November 21, when Brooks was driving the SUV through the procession in Downtown Waukesha, he and other police officers called him to halt.
He decided to drive the car so that it zig-zagged across the street for several blocks, running over and colliding with marchers. According to him, Brooks killed six people and injured 61 others. Public Defender Anna Kees, Brooks’s counsel, stated that Brooks was high at the time of the event even though the arresting officers noted that Brooks’s eyes were red and glassy and that he smelled of marijuana.
She insisted that he could not deviate from the parade path since the side street was blocked off and crowded with onlookers. She further mentioned that when detectives showed him pictures of the carnage, he claimed he didn’t intend to kill anyone and couldn’t bring himself to look. Open said that even if Brooks was intoxicated on marijuana, he still committed numerous felonies and that all he had to do was stop the car.
Brooks, dressed in a scarlet jail jumpsuit and surgical mask, sat silently at the defense table. He said nothing. On February 11, Costello gave him the summons to appear for an arraignment. At that time, Brooks will plead guilty. He remains detained on a$ 5 million cash bond.
In relation to that alleged earlier incident, Brooks had been taken into custody in nearby Milwaukee County. Two days prior to the parade, on November 19, he was released from custody after paying a $ 1,000 bond.
Democratic Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chislom has come under heavy fire for his office’s recommendation that Brooks’s bond is set at such a low amount.
In December, Chisholm informed county officials that the Covid-19 outbreak had caused a backlog in cases at his office. A young, overworked assistant prosecutor recommended a $ 1,000 bond for Brooks so she could proceed on the other issues, but Chisholm claimed that an assessment of the risk Brooks posed to the community never entered his office’s computer system and remained undetected.
In December, a group of Milwaukee County Taxpayers complained to Governor Tony Eyers and Demanded that Chisholm be removed from office. The case has technical legal flaws, and the complaint is invalid, according to the lawyer the Evers administration engaged in evaluating it. Evers declined to take any action against fellow Democrat Chisholm.
Chisholm has advocated against cash bail, contending that it is unfair to poor defendants. In his new approach, only violent offenders are imprisoned until their cases are heard.
