LOCK HIM UP!
The man behind the killing of a white nationalist counter protestor is looking to spend more years behind bars.
Associated Press reports James Alex Fields will now be facing first-degree murder for killing 32-year-old Heather Heyer. Prosecutors announced during the preliminary hearings on the matter of the crime, evidence points to first-degree murder, which a judge agreed to.
Heyer along with other counter-protestors who fought against the hate at the Charlottesville “Unite the Right” march, were hit by Fields vehicle as he ran it through a crowd. Heyer later died from her injuries and 36 other protestors were injured.
Fields’ attorney Denise Lunsford says her client is “sorry” for the death of Heyer and injuring others. He faces up to 40 years in prison, I bet he does feel sorry now.
