HeadlineDec 10, 2018

In Virginia, a jury convicted self-described neo-Nazi James Alex Fields of first-degree murder for killing anti-fascist protester Heather Heyer. At the deadly Charlottesville rally last year, Fields plowed his car into a crowd of people protesting the white supremacist “Unite the Right” rally, killing 32-year-old Heyer and injuring 35 others. A sentencing hearing is set to take place today. Fields is also facing separate federal hate crime charges, which could result in the death penalty.
