Authorities say a 20-year-old OH man accused of driving a vehicle into a group of counter-protesters at a white nationalist rally has been charged with second-degree murder and other counts.

Charlottesville Police say the suspect is in custody.

Fields, 20, from OH, is facing charges of second-degree murder, malicious woundings and failure to stop at the scene of an accident that resulted in a death.

The 32-year-old female was crossing the road when she was struck by the suspect driver.
