Man charged with murder over car driven into protesters at nationalist rally
A man accused of driving into a crowd protesting against a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville has been indicted on 10 felony counts including first-degree murder.
Court records show a grand jury returned an indictment against 20-year-old James Alex Fields, from Ohio.
Prosecutors say Fields drove into peaceful counter-protesters as the rally drew hundreds of white nationalists to the Virginia college town.
A woman was killed and 35 people were injured.
Fields, described by a former teacher as fascinated with Nazism, was initially charged with second-degree murder. The charge was upgraded last week.
Also indicted were three men charged in connection with an attack on a man in a parking garage on the day of the rally, and a man charged with firing a gun.
