Was he a white supremacist?

"We had talked about the rally, and I never asked her if she was coming or not", she said.

A auto drove into a group of counter-protestors in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Fields graduated in 2015 and went into the Army, but he left active duty after failing to meet training standards, according to a spokeswoman for the Army.

In an interview on Saturday, Bloom told the AP she was aware that her son was headed to a rally in Virginia but did not know it was connected to white nationalists.

Heather Heyer, a 32-year-old paralegal, was among those counter-protesters and was killed.

The crowd was protesting a gathering of far-right activists who came to the city for an event called "Unite the Right", starting on Friday.

"I thought it had something to do with Trump".

Judge Downer explained that Fields could not be appointed a public defender as a relative of an someone working in the public defender's office had been injured in the crash.

Colonel Martin Kumer, superintendent at the Albemarle-Charlottesville Regional Jail, said 20-year-old James Alex Fields Jr will face a bond hearing on Monday morning.

Fields had been photographed hours earlier carrying the emblem of Vanguard America, one of the white supremacist hate groups that organised the "take America back" campaign sparked by the removal of a Confederate statue.

Fields grew up in Kentucky and moved to OH with his mother about a year ago.

His mother told reporters after the attacks that she wasn't aware of the reason for the rally, or aware of any motivations to harm others. Meanwhile, President Trump's criticism on the incident has sparked a backlash, as he condemned "hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides", failing to explicitly denounce the role of white supremacists.

Anyway, she also told the outlet that her son "had an African-American friend" so clearly he's not racist.

The Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigations have launched a civil rights investigation into the deadly crash.
