Washington: A child injured when a car plowed into a Wisconsin Christmas parade has died, taking the toll from the tragedy to six, a local prosecutor said Tuesday as the suspect appeared in court.

Darrell Brooks, 39, was charged with five counts of intentional homicide, and now faces a sixth murder charge, prosecutor Susan Opper said. Brooks allegedly steered his red SUV into marching musicians, dancers and children in the annual holiday parade Sunday in the city of Waukesha.
