Jury selected for trial of man accused of killing 6 at Waukesha parade

WAUKESHA, Wis. — A jury has been selected in the trial of the Milwaukee man charged with driving into a crowded holiday parade in Waukesha nearly a year ago.

After two days of jury selection, 16 jurors were picked to hear the case Tuesday evening, online court records show.

WDJT-TV reports the jury consists of ten men and six women. Twelve will ultimately deliberate the case against Darrell Brooks, with the remaining four serving as alternates.

Brooks is accused of driving an SUV through the Waukesha Christmas Parade on Nov. 21, 2021, killing six people and injuring dozens more. He faces more than 70 charges stemming from the incident.

Jury selection in the case began Monday. Brooks, who is representing himself, repeatedly disrupted proceedings Monday, leading Judge Jennifer Dorow to take part in jury selection from another room.

The trial is scheduled to begin Thursday.
