Fields was taken into custody the same day and would be appointed a lawyer, Judge Robert Downer said during the bond hearing Monday morning.

Correa says Heyer and other counterprotesters put their lives on the line to confront hateful bigotry.

Many protesters waved Confederate flags and chanted fascist and nationalist slogans.

Police in Charlottesville say Fields killed a 32-year-old woman when he intentionally struck her with his silver Dodge Challenger.

20, made his first court appearance - via video from jail - on charges of second-degree murder, three counts of malicious wounding and one count of hit and run.

Bloom told the Toledo Blade newspaper that her son had said he was going to an "alt-right" rally in Virginia - using a term that encompasses the Ku Klux Klan, neo-Nazis and white nationalists.

The man accused of ramming a auto into a crowd protesting against a white supremacist rally in Virginia had reportedly held Nazi views since high school. Police say Fields rammed his auto through a narrow street filled with people.

When he was just 13 and 14 years old, Fields was arrested and detained for spitting in his wheelchair-bound mom's face before intimidating her with a 12-inch knife.

Fields had been photographed hours before the vehicle attack carrying the emblem of Vanguard America, one of the white supremacist hate groups that organised the "take America back" campaign sparked by the removal of a Confederate statue. The men held white shields with Vanguard America's black-and-white logo of two crossed axes.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced late Saturday that the Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation will be investigating the incident as domestic terrorism and as a hate crime.

President Donald Trump also reacted but was criticized for not directly calling out groups who supported bigotry at the rally. We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides, on many sides.
