The suspect who drove his car through a Christmas parade faces another charge of intentional homicide, New York Post reported Monday.

Darrell Brooks, 39, has been charged with six counts of first-degree intentional homicide after 8-year-old Jackson Sparks succumbed to severe brain damage and bodily injuries sustained during the Christmas parade attack, according to the New York Post. As of Monday, 7 other children remain hospitalized at Children’s Wisconsin, the hospital where Sparks died.

Jackson’s parents, Aaron and Sheri Sparks, said “Jackson loved baseball and played for the Waukesha Blazers” and enjoyed fishing as well as playing with his dog. (RELATED: Judge Sets Wisconsin Suspect’s Bail At $5 Million)

“When not playing baseball, or slam-dunking basketballs throughout the house, Jackson enjoyed fishing, catching frogs, and playing with his brother Tucker and his dog Qi’ra,” his parents wrote in his obituary, according to the New York Post. Children and his friends will wear baseball jerseys to Jackson’s funeral that will take place on Thursday in Mukwonago, Wisconsin.
