    James Alex Fields Jr., who is accused of killing a woman after plowing his car into a crowd of people protesting against white nationalists in Charlottesville, Virginia over the weekend, was denied bond during his first court appearance on Monday, according to US media reports.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — JFields did not enter a plea in connection with the incident that killed one woman and injured 19 others, NBC News reported.

    Media reports noted that the 20-year-old resident of the US state of Ohio was denied bond by the judge, and will be held until his next court date on August 25.

    Police arrested Fields on Saturday, shortly after they say he ran his car into a group of counter-protestors demonstrating against the white nationalists who were holding a rally in Charlottesville.
