The Ohio man accused of driving into a crowd protesting a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia has been indicted on 10 felony counts, including first-degree murder. Prosecutors say 20-year-old James Fields Junior drove into peaceful counterprotesters, killing one person and injuring 35 other.  Fields, described by a former teacher as fascinated with Nazism, was initially charged with second-degree murder. The charge was upgraded last week.
