From WGTD News and The Associated Press:
A 23-count criminal complaint has been filed in Racine Court against Terry Jackson in the shooting death last month of Brittany Booker. The 41-year-old Jackson remains on the run. New information about the case is included in the recently-filed complaint. Police believe Jackson went to Booker’s home in the middle of the night and forced her to accompany him in an unsuccessful search for his estranged girlfriend. Blood was found in Booker’s bedroom and on the nightclothes of a child who purportedly been sleeping with her. The complaint doesn’t elaborate on the child’s involvement. Doorbell video shows a man police say is Jackson leading Booker to her car. She drives off with the man in the passenger seat. GPS technology and video cameras tracked the car’s movement in the neighborhood. At some point, Booker is shot in the head, and her body is found in the driver’s seat of her car parked about a block from her home.
Jacob Blake has dropped the federal lawsuit he filed against the Kenosha police officer who shot him during a domestic dispute nearly two years ago. Neither attorneys for Blake nor Kenosha Officer Rusten Sheskey indicated in their court filings why the lawsuit was being dropped, including whether a settlement had been reached. Sheskey, who is white, shot Blake, who is Black, after Blake resisted arrest during the disturbance and appeared to turn toward Sheskey with a knife. Prosecutors later cleared Sheskey of criminal wrongdoing and dropped sexual assault charges against Blake that preceded the shooting as part of a plea deal. The Blake shooting triggered three days of demonstrations and violence that ended shortly after Kyle Rittenhouse fatally shot two men and wounded a third.
Kenosha police have yet to release the name of the motorcyclist who lost control and crashed into a pole Sunday night just west of Froedtert Kenosha Hospital on Sheridan Rd. The 27-year-old county resident was pronounced dead at the scene. Witnesses told police he’d been weaving through traffic at a high rate of speed while traveling north on Sheridan.
