KENOSHA, WI (WTAQ) - Authorities are recommending a dozen criminal charges against a Kenosha man suspected of causing a drunk driving crash that killed a 5-year-old boy.
Seven of the 12 possible counts against 29-year-old Marcus Thornton are for bail jumping. Others include causing homicide and injury by drunk driving, causing injury while driving on a revoked license, and his 4th OWI charge.
Online court records show that his third case is still pending -- and he was cited earlier this year for refusing to have his blood alcohol level checked.
Kenosha County authorities said Thornton's minivan drove through a stop sign in the town of Somers on Tuesday night, and collided with a car in which 5-year-old Bailey McCollum was killed.
Both drivers were taken to hospitals for treatment.
Thornton is under a police guard while getting his treatment. Officials say he'll go directly to jail once he's released.
