The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “Wisconsin tragedy: Suspect sobs in court as he is charged over Waukesha Christmas parade attack” – below is their description.

Prosecutors in Wisconsin have charged a man with intentional homicide in the deaths of five people who were killed when an SUV was driven into a Christmas parade that also left 62 people injured, including many children.

Prosecutors say a sixth person, a child, has died and more charges are pending.

Darrell Brooks Jr was charged with five counts of intentional homicide in the crash Sunday in Waukesha, a Milwaukee suburb.

Conviction on first-degree intentional homicide carries a mandatory life sentence, Wisconsin’s stiffest penalty.

Brooks made his initial appearance in court Tuesday.

He could be heard crying during the proceeding, leaning over with his head nearly in his lap, with his attorney resting a hand on his back.
