White nationalist James Fields guilty of murder after Charlottesville tragedy

A white nationalist who drove his car into a crowd of people protesting a white supremacist rally has been found guilty of murder.

James Fields, 21, was involved in the incident in Charlottesville, Virginia, last year, killing one of the counterdemonstrators.

He was found guilty today of first-degree murder and nine other counts.

The jury deliberated for less than a day before convicting Fields, of all charges stemming from the deadly confrontation that occurred after police had declared an unlawful assembly and cleared a park of white supremacists gathered for the "Unite the Right" rally.
