Danari Peer's parents blame John Chisholm bail push for his death

A Milwaukee couple whose son was killed while riding with a speed demon and repeat felon ripped the county’s DA, who has fought for relaxing bail laws.

Danari Peer, 20, was killed on Oct. 5 while riding in the passenger seat of a car driven by Jai’Quann McMurtry, who was flying down the street at 109 miles per hour when he hit a tree, ABC7 reported.

McMurtry, who was previously arrested for three felonies related to cocaine and gun possession, was out on bail when the crash occurred, the station reported. He received a $1,000 signature bond and $500 cash bond.

This week, McMurtry pleaded not guilty to three counts of felony bail jumping, cocaine possession and driving without a license, along with second-degree reckless homicide of Danari Peer. Bail was set at $50,000.

Peer’s parents, Jackie Peer and Nicole Byrd, slammed Milwaukee County’s Democratic District Attorney John T. Chisholm, who was elected in 2007 and has pursued setting lower cash bail for criminals, as the reason behind their son’s death.

“This is so unnecessary and could be prevented,” Jackie Peer told the station. “We don’t want other families to have to experience this pain.”
