A child has become the sixth person to die after a car ploughed into a Christmas parade in the US – it came as the suspect appeared in court charged with multiple homicides.

Darrell Brooks, 39, appeared in court over Sunday’s incident in Waukesha, Wisconsin, and rocked back and forth with his face in his hands.

Four women and one man also died when the SUV sped down the parade route

More than 60 people were also injured.
