The Herald (Rock Hill) - - Stay Connected -

An avowed sup­porter of neo-Nazi be­liefs who took part in the vi­o­lent white su­prem­a­cist “Unite the Right” rally in Char­lottesville, Va., last year was found guilty Fri­day of first-de­gree mur­der for killing a woman by ram­ming his car through a crowd of coun­ter­protesters.

A jury of seven women and five men be­gan de­lib­er­at­ing Fri­day morn­ing and took just over seven hours to reach its de­ci­sion that James Fields Jr., 21, of Maumee, Ohio, acted with pre­med­i­ta­tion when he backed up his 2010 Dodge Chal­lenger and then roared it down a nar­row down­town street, killing Heather Heyer, 32.
