A jury has sentenced neo-Nazi James Alex Fields Jr. to life plus 419 years for killing Heather Heyer and injuring 35 others when he rammed his car into a crowd at the 2017 white nationalist rally in Charlottesville. The sentencing of Fields, convicted last week of first degree murder, came after emotional testimony from his victims. "Heather was full of love, justice, and fairness," said her mother Susan Bro. "Mr. Fields tried to silence her. I refuse to allow that."
