A judge on Monday appointed an attorney for James Alex Fields Jr., the man suspected of killing a woman as he allegedly mowed down a group of counterprotesters at a white supremacist rally here. Fields, 20, is accused of driving his car into a crowd of people, killing Heather Heyer, a 32-year-old paralegal, who was protesting the "Unite the Right" march on Saturday. Fields is being held on suspicion of second-degree murder, malicious wounding and failure to stop in an accident that resulted in death. Fields was also denied bail by a judge, the Associated Press reports.
