    .
    CHARLOTTESVILLE Va. (WVIR) — The second day of testimony in a weeks-long murder trial offered jurors more insight from investigators and those directly affected by the deadly car attack in downtown Charlottesville on August 12, 2017.

    Testimony Friday, November 30, began with Charlottesville Police Detective Jeremy Carper. He was one of the officers who responded to the scene at Monticello Avenue on Aug. 12th, where James Alex Fields, Junior was taken into police custody. The 21-year-old is charged with first-degree murder, five counts of aggravated malicious wounding, three counts of malicious wounding, and one count of failing to stop at an accident involving a death.

    Fields' attorneys acknowledge during opening statements Thursday that their client was behind the wheel of the Dodge Challenger that drove into a crowd of counterprotesters on Fourth Street, but are likely to argue he acted in self-defense. That car attack injured dozens, and killed Heather Heyer.

    Much of the commonwealth's case rests on Fields' intent: they have to prove to the jury of nine women and seven men that the defendant acted with premeditation.

    Friday, the commonwealth presented photos of Fields' damaged Dodge Challenger to the jury, noting that it was missing a side mirror. According to evidence, Virginia State Police recovered a side mirror on Fourth St. that is similar to the make of Fields' car. That mirror had a reddish, brown stain described as potential blood.

    Detective Carper explained to the jury the process for swabbing evidence, as well as going over photographs from the scenes - both from Monticello Ave. and Fourth St. Most of those images focused on red stains along Fourth St. and adjacent cars.

    “First of all, the [Charlottesville Police Department Forensic Unit] is extremely detailed, extremely careful about collecting that kind of stuff in large part because Charlottesville juries expect it. They want to see that kind of forensic evidence. So they want to see it, but more importantly it also shows just how thoroughly the case is getting investigated,” legal analyst Lloyd Snook said.

    The court also heard from Charlottesville Police Detective Steven Young, the lead investigator in the Fourth St. crash. Young said police began obtaining search warrants for Fields' car and phone after the fatal incident. Through the investigation, it was determined that Fields was driving the Dodge Challenger that drove into the crowd. Authorities also looked at his social media to pinpoint his location throughout the day.

    The detective said investigators determined through footage that Fields was standing with people in helmets who were dressed similarly to him. Fields also took part in chanting "Jews will not replace us" with that group.

    Det. Young reviewed video evidence from a Virginia State Police helicopter to the jury. Senior Assistant Commonwealth’s Attorney Nina-Alice Antony asked Young to identify Fields' Dodge Challenger in that footage. She asked Young if the video makes it clear that Fields did not stop after hitting the crowd at Fourth St. and Water St. The detective said yes.

    Later in the footage, the Dodge Challenger was pulled over on Monticello Avenue, and an individual was brought out of the car by police. Young identified that individual as the defendant, James Alex Fields, Jr.

    Young also mentioned surveillance footage from Red Pump Kitchen, which is located at a corner of the Downtown Mall's pedestrian crossing for Fourth St., proved helpful in the investigation.

    Jurors heard the first-hand accounts of the drivers who had stopped on Fourth Street for the marchers: Lizete Short had gotten out of the minivan she was driving to take video of counterprotesters as they approached Fourth St. She was struck by the minivan, ending up on the hood and hit her head on the windshield. The witness said she only remembers being helped off street and asking, "Where are my kids?"

    Tadrint "Tay" Washington was driving the car behind Short. While stopped, Washington said she saw a car behind her start backing up. Still in her car, Washington heard someone in the crowd say, "thank you for your patience."

    While tearing up, Washington described hearing a loud noise then noticing someone on top of her car. The Dodge Challenger had slammed into her car, which pushed Washington into some of the counterprotesters, as well as into the minivan.

    Washington and her sister, Micah, have filed a multimillion-dollar lawsuit against those they believe are responsible for the deadly car attack: Fields, Unite the Right rally organizer Jason Eric Kessler, and dozens of others.

    During cross examination, the defense separately asked both Short and Washington if there were barriers blocking then from driving down Market Street. Short said she doesn't remember, and that there was not enough space to turn right on Water Street between the crowds.

    Counterprotesters Star Peterson and Wednesday Bowie walked the court through how they each ended up on Fourth Street, and the lasting physical damage they sustained because of the crash: While on the ground, Peterson said she saw the eyes of Heather Heyer and thought, "those are the eyes of someone who is dead." Bowie had ran over to help people hit by the Dodge Challenger, but was injured when the car reversed.

    Since the crash, Peterson has had five surgeries on her leg, with another surgery scheduled next year. She told the court that she regularly uses a wheelchair.

    Bowie suffered a torn artery, internal bleeding, a broken tailbone, several lacerations, cracked vertebra, and her pelvis was broken in six places. She told the jury that she cannot sit or walk for long periods of time without experiencing pain. Her walking gait is also permanently affected, which causes pain.

    Ryan Kelly, a former Daily Progress reporter, took the witness stand Friday. He took pictures of the counterprotesters as they marched along Water Street. Kelly said he saw the Dodge Challenger on Fourth St. slowly back up toward Market Street, then he heard the rev of an engine while he was taking pictures of the crowd. He turned to see the car speed past him.

    Kelly began taking rapid pictures of the Dodge Challenger as it approached the crowd, made impact, and reversed back up to Market Street.

    During cross examination, Kelly was asked if he saw brake lights on the Challenger as it approached the crowd. During the commonwealth's redirect, each photo was shown in sequence and Kelly did not see any break lights or damage to the car until it began backing up.

    Officials have released court documents on two Instagram posts from Fields [PDF] back in May 2017: One is a public post, while the other is listed as a private message. Both show an image of a car driving through a crowd with different messaging referencing protests. These images are expected to be used by the commonwealth during trial.
    See the re-posted pdf file of 39 pages: http://tenthousandwarlords.org/2018/...ram-motion.pdf

    The trial, which officially got underway Monday, November 26, is scheduled for a total of 18 days. [Click for coverage of Day 1, Day 2, Day 3, Day 4]

    *CORRECTION: An earlier version of this article incorrectly stated that blood collected from the windshield of the Dodge Challenger matched DNA swabs collected from Heather Heyer. That sample has not yet been confirmed.

    There's literally video of Dixon bragging about waving a rifle at him, a written confession of one communist pulling a gun on him at the scene, and video of yet a third communist pulling a gun on him at the scene. This kangaroo court will likely convict him anyway, but that's why all of us should have had our change of venue motions granted.

    .

    Fields should have been charged with vehicular homocide, instead this is a shoah trial for this scared fool for his very life.

    All the incompetence of the Virginia governor and City of Charlottesville unlawfully shutting down a a permitted demonstation and putting the Rally attendees into the arms of the local and trucked-in mob is now to be placed on Fields and everyone else stupid enough to move to enemy territory to protest the removal of Confederate monuments who had to defend themselves. Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed for the crime of abuse of legal process against strangers. As went Sodom so shall go Charlottesville, andf it is prophesised that the Men of Sodom who were destroyed by fire and brmstone shall judge this [de]generation.

    Chris Cantwell was attending that Rally. He fought and won in their korts. But there never should have been this stupid Rally planned by ZOGbots in the first place.

    The antifa scared this fool into a panic and so when chased he plowed into a mob of antifa chasing the Rally goers. The ones who set up this accident should be on trial for the killing that resulted from the panic.

    Hail Victory !!!

    Default Charlottesville Unite-The-Right Attacker Did Not Brake as He Drove Into Crowd, Witness Says

    Charlottesville Unite-The-Right Attacker Did Not Brake as He Drove Into Crowd, Witness Says

    BY DAVID BRENNAN ON 12/1/18 AT 1:02 PM

    .

    Charlottesville Unite the Right attacker James Fields Jr. showed no intention of slowing down as he ploughed his car into a crowd of counterprotesters, according to a photojournalist who witnessed the attack.

    Ryan Kelly, whose photo of the attack published in the The Daily Progress won a Pulitzer Prize, told a court Friday that Fields—who is on trial accused of murder—at no point tried to brake.

    “I heard screeching tires and an engine revving as it sped past me up the street,” Kelly said, according to Reuters. He continued, “It was faster than any car I’ve seen on that street. It was speeding, going directly into that crowd.”

    Fields, a 21-year-old white nationalist, killed one person and injured 19 others when he drove through protesters. He faces 10 charges related to the attack.

    Fields claims he acted in self-defense, arguing he was afraid of the large crowd around his car. However, video and photographs of the incident show his vehicle traveling from further down the street and driving straight into the crowd.

    One of those injured, Jean Peterson, also testified, making her way to the stand with the assistance of a cane. She said the atmosphere around the crowd of demonstrators had been “celebratory and convivial” before they were hit.

    Peterson described two bumps going over her legs as the car sped across her body. She recalled thinking that she ought to push herself out of the street. “My legs wouldn’t work,” Peterson explained. “I was a fast walker,” she told the court, and is now waiting for her sixth surgery since the attack.

    Fields' Dodge Challenger After Collision in Charlottesville

    .

    Fields had earlier been photographed marching with a white nationalist group at the Unite the RIght rally, called to protest the planned removal of a statue honoring the U.S. Civil War-era Confederacy from a public park.

    The event descended into running battles between nationalists and counterprotesters. Police have been criticized for perceived inaction in the face of the right wingers, some of whom arrived carrying shields, makeshift weapons, body armor and some even sporting long guns.

    Another witness, Tay Washington, said she was caught up in the attach as she drove into downtown Charlottesville. “I’ve never seen so many white people standing up for black people,” Washington, who is black, told the jury. “It was a ‘wow’ thing.”

    She said there was a noise and commotion before a body landed on the hood of her car. Washington said she hit her head on her steering rule “and then kind of blacked out.”

    Prosecutors argue Fields’ killing of 32 year old Heather Heyer represents pre-meditated murder. His trial is expected to last around three weeks.

    President Donald Trump expressed solidarity with the right-wing protesters in the aftermath of the attack, suggesting wrongs had been committed on both sides.

    Default The five most compelling moments so far in the 'Unite the Right' murder trial

    The five most compelling moments so far in the 'Unite the Right' murder trial


    https://www.splcenter.org/hatewatch/...t-murder-trial
    http://christian-identity.net/forum/...8967#post18967
    http://whitenationalist.org/forum/sh...8967#post18967




    A juror clasped his hand over his mouth in court on Thursday as prosecutors played a video showing a young neo-Nazi sympathizer plowing his car into a group of anti-racist protestors after last year’s “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

    As the video played, the defendant, James Alex Fields Jr., showed no sign of emotion.

    After three days of jury selection, the biggest criminal case to stem from the deadly white nationalist rally began in Charlottesville Circuit Court with opening statements and the first witness testimony.

    The 21-year-old Maumee, Ohio, man is on trial for first-degree murder, accused of intentionally driving his Dodge Challenger into a crowd of counterprotesters following the Aug. 12, 2017 rally.

    Here are five noteworthy moments from the trial so far:

    1. The Instagram posts

    Prosecutors alleged Fields made two posts on Instagram showing a picture of a car running into a crowd labeled “progressives.” The posts on May 12, 2017 and May 17, 2017 — some three months before the rally — are expected to be shown to the jury later in the trial, Assistant Commonwealth Attorney Nina Antony said. Antony’s opening statement marked the first time news of the Instagram posts had been made public.

    2. There’s no dispute Fields was behind the wheel

    The prosecution and defense agreed that Fields drove his car into the crowd of counterprotesters and that 32-year-old paralegal Heather Heyer died that day.

    Defense lawyers focused on the chaos of the day. Prosecutors zeroed in on the calmer mood in the afternoon just before the collision. “This is not about what he did,” Antony said. “It’s about what his intent was when he did it.”

    3. Witness videotaped Fields marching with neo-Nazis


    Fields rallied with the neo-Nazi group Vanguard America during “Unite the Right.” Stephen Simochek, a Charlottesville resident who videotaped parts of the rally, caught Fields on tape marching out of what is now Market Street Park with Vanguard America holding a shield from the group. Simochek said he didn’t realize Fields was on his video for a full year until he watched it on the first anniversary of “Unite the Right.” “It looked a lot like the person, James Fields,” Simochek told jurors Thursday.

    4. Jurors are shown a video of the collision

    Prosecutors played video of Fields’ car hitting the group of counterprotesters. Screams, screeching tires and obscenities could be heard as bodies, clothes and water bottles flew through the air. One juror kept his hand over his mouth through much of the brief video. Fields, dressed for court in a dark blue sweater and open collared shirt, showed no visible signs of emotion as the video played.

    5. Defense says fields was in a ‘uniform’ that day


    Fields drove the seven-plus hours from Ohio to Virginia to attend “Unite the Right.” His attorney noted that Fields only brought one change of clothes – a white polo shirt and khaki pants. That outfit matched the uniform worn by Vanguard America, a group that quickly disavowed Fields after his arrest. Defense attorney John Hill addressed the outfit with jurors in opening statements: “It was the uniform of the day.”

    Default Weekend: Fields murder trial continues Monday; defense to begin presenting case Tuesday or Wednesday

    Weekend: Fields murder trial continues Monday; defense to begin presenting case Tuesday or Wednesday

    .
    CHARLOTTESVILLE — Charlottesville police Cpl. Steve Young kept his eyes closed as the jury was about to watch the terrifying scene of a speeding Dodge Challenger smashing into a mass of bodies on a narrow downtown side street. He had seen it enough.

    Jeanne Peterson’s friends tried to console her late in the fifth day of the murder trial. They held onto each other and sobbed over the screams heard in the video as Young looked to the screen again to point out Peterson and other victims of the crash on Aug. 12, 2017.

    Among those he pointed out was Heather Heyer, a 32-year-old paralegal. At the end of his testimony, he placed a pin on a diagram of the scene to show where she died.

    After three days of jury selection last week, the murder trial of James Alex Fields Jr. began in earnest Thursday with opening statements and testimony from seven witnesses, followed by seven more on Friday.

    The central question the jury must answer: Did Fields act out of fear or malice?

    When the trial resumes Monday, prosecutors will continue to present evidence and witness testimony that they believe show Fields wanted to hurt the counterprotesters because of his personal beliefs.

    Circuit Judge Richard E. Moore, who is presiding over the trial, said there will be at least two more days of testimony from the prosecution’s witnesses, with the defense beginning its case in the three-week trial on Tuesday evening or Wednesday morning.

    Fields pleaded not guilty earlier this year to first-degree murder, eight counts of wounding and hit-and-run. But one of his attorneys said last week that no one is disputing that Fields was behind the wheel of the Challenger.

    His attorneys say he feared for his life after traveling from his home in Maumee, Ohio, to attend the white nationalist rally that turned violent, causing police to declare it an unlawful assembly.

    “The atmosphere of that day was impossible — it was hot, humid and noisy,” said attorney John Hill. “There were hundreds of people. ... There was fighting and screaming.”

    The two prosecutors in the case argue that Fields acted with malicious intent, arriving in Charlottesville for the Unite the Right rally earlier that day with “anger and images of violence on his mind,” said prosecutor Nina-Alice Antony.

    In her opening statement, Antony noted that Fields had previously posted images on Instagram depicting a car running into protesters.

    She said his mom texted him before he arrived in Charlottesville, asking him to be careful.

    He replied: “We’re not the ones who need to be careful.”

    Supplementing video evidence of the deadly incident, several witnesses said they saw Fields’ gray Dodge back up on the one-way street before driving into the crowd.

    In court Thursday, Michael Webster said he and his girlfriend thought things had calmed down enough by the afternoon that they could have lunch downtown.

    As Fields’ car sped by him moments later, Webster immediately thought he was witnessing a terrorist attack similar to those that have happened in Europe.

    “Because of the world we live in, I thought, ‘Oh God, he’s driving into the crowd,’” Webster said.

    Other witnesses who testified in court last week said they had come to protest the white nationalist rally in what was then called Emancipation Park, where a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee stands.

    The rally’s organizer intended the event to be a protest of the city’s plans to remove the memorial, and invited various white supremacist and neo-Nazi groups to attend and speak at the rally.

    About an hour after authorities put an end to the event, according to a few of the witnesses, some counterprotesters who had relocated to other downtown parks were told that people wearing military fatigues and armed with long guns were marching toward a predominantly African-American public housing community nearby.

    Peterson, along with Wednesday Bowie, said they left with other people to help protect the neighborhood, but were asked to turn away when they got close because the self-styled militiamen appeared to be leaving.

    Various groups of counterprotesters began to converge. Nearly all of the witnesses who testified last week said the massive group was joyous and appeared to be celebrating as if they had defeated the message of the white nationalist rally.

    Tadrint Washington was unable to turn her silver Toyota Camry because the march began to surround her car. She said it was an unbelievable sight.

    “I had never seen white people standing up for black people like that. There was a ‘wow’ factor for me,” she said.

    It was that massive group of people that turned onto Fourth Street, where Fields would drive into them moments later.

    Fields’ vehicle stopped in the crowd because he struck the back of Washington’s car.

    She said she didn’t realize her car had been hit. It sounded to her like a bomb exploded.

    Fields’ attorneys said last week that they expect to present evidence and testimony regarding Fields’ mental health and the fear he felt throughout the day.

    They said some of the witnesses they anticipate calling to the stand include experts from the University of Virginia Institute of Law, Psychiatry and Public Policy and Dwayne Dixon, a University of North Carolina lecturer and associate of the leftist protest group antifa.

    At a guest lecture at Harvard University in October 2017, Dixon claimed to have “shooed” Fields away with his rifle shortly before the crash.

    Far-right websites have latched onto those statements and an alleged Facebook post by Dixon that appeared to be deleted as proof that he frightened Fields into driving in the crowd marching on Fourth Street.

    Fields’ attorneys have not explicitly repeated that theory, but said Fields felt fearful after his experiences throughout the day.

    However, in cross-examination of the prosecution’s witnesses, they have asked whether they saw aggressive behavior or interactions between rallygoers and counterprotesters shortly before the alleged car attack.

    Most of the witnesses under cross-examination said they did not notice any tense interactions later in the day, before the alleged attack. But Brian Henderson, one of the witnesses, said he saw someone throw a rock at a purple van full of rallygoers.

    Lloyd Snook, a Charlottesville attorney who is not involved in the case, said it’s possible the jury could find Fields guilty of a lesser offense like voluntary manslaughter instead of murder. But he also said that, if the jury dismisses the idea that Fields was afraid, a conviction of first-degree murder would seem likely because premeditation under Virginia law only takes “a split second.”

    “The issue is did he behave reasonably in light of a reasonable fear,” he said. “That’s why this business of his Instagram post and whether he, at some level, endorsed the idea [of running over protesters] is important, because it really strikes at the heart of this notion of fear.”

    In addition to the Instagram posts, Young testified in court Friday that Fields appeared to be chanting homophobic slurs at counterprotesters earlier in the day, and marched with the white nationalist group Vanguard America.

    Fields is also facing 30 federal hate crime charges. That trial has not been scheduled yet.


    his article has been corrected to reflect that Charlottesville police Cpl. Young's first name is Steve.

    Day 6: Assistant chief medical examiner confirms blunt force injury as cause of Heather Heyer's death

    Unhappy Camper -- A [not so] fine time is had by James Fields
    .

    CHARLOTTESVILLE — Two forensic science experts testified in the Charlottesville murder trial of James Alex Fields Jr. on Monday to explain how a victim died after Fields drove his car into a crowd of counterprotesters shortly after a violent white nationalist rally came to a premature end.

    The expert witnesses said Heather Heyer died of blunt force injury to her torso and that blood samples collected from Fields’ Dodge Challenger matched Heyer’s DNA.

    The sixth day of Fields’ three-week state trial ended after the jury heard testimony from eight witnesses, including a University of Virginia police officer, a first responder who tried to save Heyer’s life and two crash victims.

    Marissa Blair-Martin, whose then-fiancé pushed her out of the way of the speeding vehicle, said the couple went downtown with another friend about noon on Aug. 12, 2017, to meet Heyer and protest the Unite the Right rally.

    Marcus Martin, now her husband, testified in court last week, describing the injuries he suffered from being struck by the car.

    Arriving downtown about an hour after police declared the rally to be an unlawful assembly because of fighting between the rallygoers and counterprotesters, the four joined a counterprotest march that Blair said appeared to be joyful, rather than antagonistic.

    “It felt like love,” she said.

    Fields’ car slammed into the marchers minutes later after the group had turned left onto a one-way street approaching the city’s downtown pedestrian mall.

    Capt. Steward “Nick” Barrell, of the Charlottesville Fire Department, told the jury that he arrived on the scene of the crash within two minutes of the initial report that a pedestrian was struck by a vehicle.

    Barrell said he hadn’t expected to find much, but he alerted his colleagues that it appeared to be a mass casualty incident after seeing what he estimated to be about 30 victims.

    Barrell knew Heyer was in trouble. She had a large contusion on her chest and a laceration on her leg. Her condition appeared to be consistent with cardiac arrest and other significant trauma, so Barrell called for her immediate evacuation, he said.

    “We thought there might be fractures and knew there was blood,” he said. “Outside of a hospital, that’s almost impossible to survive.”

    .


    Dead Landwhale-Mudshark Hether Heyer

    .

    Jennifer Nicole Bowers, an assistant chief medical examiner for the state, said she conducted an autopsy on Heyer two days after the crash. She determined that Heyer died as a result of blunt force injury to her torso.

    Among other injuries, such as a broken femur and lacerations on her legs and back, Heyer’s thoracic aorta — the largest artery in the body — was severed.

    Kristin Van Itallie, with the Virginia Department of Forensic Science said she examined samples of blood collected from the scene of the crash and on Fields’ vehicle. She said two of those blood samples were identical to DNA collected from a swab of Heyer’s cheek.

    In his own testimony last week, a Charlottesville police detective described collecting the blood evidence. He said a sample taken from the windshield of Fields’ car appeared to be Heyer’s, based on the DNA tests.

    Judge Richard E. Moore said the prosecutors are expecting to rest their case early Tuesday afternoon.

    Fields is charged with first-degree murder in the death of Heyer, 32, and several other state counts related to the deadly incident. He also faces federal hate crime charges, for which he will be tried after the state trial has concluded. He could receive the death penalty in the federal case.

    Fields’ attorneys argue that he drove the vehicle into the crowd for fear of his life, in an act of self-defense. They are expected to begin presenting their case Tuesday afternoon.

    CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) -
    Experts and witnesses called to the stand by the commonwealth are taking jurors through the grim details in the James Alex Fields, Junior trial.

    Heather Heyer had an "almost zero chance" of surviving her injuries, according to testimony Monday, December 3, from Charlottesville Fire Chief Captain Steward "Nick" Barrell. He told the court that CPR was attempted, but Barrell noted bruising across Heyer's chest that suggested she suffered a very serious injury. A Virginia State Police trooper had to also apply a tourniquet to a large laceration on Heyer's leg.

    Testimony in the Fields trial has largely featured first-hand accounts from people who were injured by the car attack on Fourth Street, by the intersection with Water Street. The 21-year-old Ohio man is charged with first-degree murder, five counts of aggravated malicious wounding, three counts of malicious wounding, and one count of failing to stop at an accident involving a death.

    Fields drove his Dodge Challenger into a stopped car and counterprotesters marching against the Unite the Right rally August 12, 2017. Heyer was killed, and dozens were injured as a result.

    Attorney John Hill has stated that Fields believed he was acting in self-defense.

    Assistant Chief Medical Examiner Dr. Jennifer Bowers specified that Heyer’s autopsy report concluded her cause of death was blunt-force injury to the chest. That report also found that Heyer's aorta artery split into two parts, that she suffered a distal femur fracture, abrasions and contusions on her lower extremity, and a pulmonary (lung) contusion from rib fractures.

    The commonwealth showed jurors the body-camera footage from University Police Officer Dean Dotts. The officer responded to the scene on Monticello Avenue, where Fields' Dodge Challenger was pulled over after the car attack. The footage depicted what was believed to be blood and flesh on Fields' car.

    DNA analyst Kristin Van Itallie testified that a DNA sample found on the windshield of the Dodge Challenger likely belonged to Heyer: She specified that there is a 1-in-7.2 billion chance that the DNA profile is not Heyer’s.

    Van Itallie added that Heyer cannot be eliminated as a contributor to DNA profiles developed from the passenger side-view mirror or front grill of the Dodge Challenger, or the roadway on Fourth Street.

    "Modern jurors exhibit what we call the ‘CSI Effect’: they want their TV scientific evidence behind everything. And when there isn't scientific evidence, some jurors sit there and say, ‘hey, wait a minute, how do I know this?’ So you just have to connect all those dots 14 different ways," said legal analyst Lloyd Snook.

    Jurors also saw footage recorded by Marissa Martin, who is married to Marcus Martin - who testified on Thursday. The witness talked about she, Martin and Heyer all joining the "happy people" marching on Water Street, and how they all started to head up Fourth Street. Martin began recording on her phone what was going on around her, which turned to "complete chaos," according to the witness: She heard tires screeching, and saw people knocked to the ground. At some point she became separated from Marcus, but found him on the ground.

    Alexis Morris and Thomas Baker recounted to the court Monday how they separately ended up with the marching counterprotesters. They described the group walking along Water Street that day as “friendly-looking” and celebratory.

    Morris recalled hearing a big "boom" and saw a flash of light. She then realized her legs were broken, and she couldn't find her daughter. Her legs had to be reset with a permanent rod and pins.

    Baker said he heard thumps, screaming, and looked up to see a car coming at him. He was directly hit in his lower half, and then hit his head on the windshield before getting sent over the top of the car and landing on the road. The commonwealth reviewed to the jury photos of the incident with Baker in them. The witness said the injuries have permeated every aspect of his life, that the range of motion in his hip is dramatically altered and he can no longer comfortably run or jump.

    There was also more testimony Monday from eye witnesses: Peter Jasiurkowski said that he and his friend passed a Dodge Challenger creeping down Fourth Street. According to the witness, the car turned on reverse lights, but soon he heard a loud acceleration. Jasiurkowski turned and saw the Challenger speed down Fourth St. He said he and his friend stood in shock, then saw the car come back up the street in reverse, saying the Dodge was traveling as fast as it was going before.

    Melissa Elliott affirmed the account given by her boyfriend, Michael Webster - who testified on Thursday. The couple noticed the group of people who were filling up the intersection of Water Street and Fourth Street, and the Dodge Challenger slowly reversing back up toward Market Street. They heard an engine rev, and Elliott saw the Dodge speed forward toward Water Street. Elliot said Webster ran to help people who had been hit. She then saw the Dodge quickly backing up again toward Market St., telling jurors that she feared the car was getting ready for another attack.

    Court ended for the day just before 3 p.m. Friday. Judge Richard Moore said the prosecution is confident it will rest its case before lunch Tuesday, December 4.

    Defense begins to present its case at James Fields' murder trial in Charlottesville

    CHARLOTTESVILLE — James Alex Fields Jr. vacillated between remorse and contempt in the months after driving his car into a crowd of people protesting a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville last year.

    He apologized to the first officer who caught up with him on Aug. 12, 2017, after he sped from the scene and, according to body camera footage played in court Tuesday, said: “I didn’t want to hurt people. I thought they were attacking me.”

    He hyperventilated for nearly two minutes during an interrogation after investigators told him he had killed one person and hurt numerous others. But in a jailhouse phone call to his mother earlier this year, Fields called the people he injured “terrorists” and “communists.”

    He showed no sympathy for Heather Heyer, the Charlottesville resident who was killed, as he and his mother talked last December about how Heyer’s own mother, Susan Bro, was coping with the tragedy.

    “She’s one of those anti-white communists,” Fields said of Bro. “It doesn’t matter. It’s not up for questioning. She’s the enemy.”

    Fields, 21, of Maumee, Ohio, is charged with first-degree murder and other crimes for killing Heyer, a 32-year-old paralegal, and injuring dozens of others in the wake of the Unite the Right rally.

    The defense began presenting its case Tuesday afternoon, calling on various police officers who witnessed Fields’ arrest. They said he appeared to show remorse and was cooperative.

    Prosecutors say Fields drove into the crowd of counterprotesters out of anger because of the violence earlier in the day. The white nationalists Fields supported — who were marching in part to protest the removal of Confederate statues — clashed violently with counterprotesters until police declared the event an unlawful assembly and forced the crowds to leave.

    Fields’ attorneys say their client, who had driven from Ohio to attend the rally, shouldn’t be convicted because he feared for his life at the time of the crash and was acting in self-defense.

    Jurors learned Tuesday that Fields sent his mother a picture of Adolf Hitler and a text message prior to the rally, after she pleaded with him to be careful.

    “We’re not the one [sic] who need to be careful,” he wrote.

    Prosecutors argue that the text shows Fields planned to engage in violence before he ever arrived in Charlottesville.

    Defense attorneys attempted to suppress the message Fields sent to his mother, arguing that it would be unfair to Fields and have limited value in determining his intent. But Judge Richard E. Moore said it could help the jury understand what motivated Fields to drive his car into the crowd.

    Brant Meyer, an FBI analyst who helped investigators by collecting data from Fields’ social media accounts, testified Tuesday about another image that prosecutors say reflected Fields’ mindset.

    The online image, posted publicly to Instagram, shows a car slamming into a group of people with overlaid text that says: “You have the right to protest, but I’m late for work.”

    Four days earlier, Fields sent a variation of the meme to a friend in an Instagram private message and wrote: “When I see protesters blocking.”

    Fields sent those images about three months before his own car plowed into the Charlottesville protesters.

    After the prosecution wrapped up its case after four days of witness testimony, Moore dismissed a defense motion to throw out the first-degree murder charge and eight counts of malicious wounding against Fields.

    “I’m not sure what else his intent could have been by driving [into the crowd] at that speed,” Moore said while the jury was out of the courtroom.

    Moore said evidence presented over the last week and testimony about how Fields idled his vehicle after backing the car away from the crowd, when he could have left the scene unimpeded, could be enough to determine his guilt.

    “His explanation that he felt threatened is contrary to the evidence of the case,” Moore said.

    Moore told the jury that the defense plans to call more witnesses Wednesday and Thursday. Closing arguments and jury deliberation, he said, could begin Thursday afternoon.

    Fields also faces federal hate crime charges, for which he will be tried after the state trial has concluded. In the federal case, he could receive the death penalty if convicted.

    CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - Defense attorneys for James Alex Fields, Junior are presenting their case to jurors in Charlottesville Circuit Court.

    The commonwealth rested Tuesday, December 4, having presented its case over the course of four days. Throughout the morning and early afternoon, the commonwealth gave jurors new insights into Fields, the man who was behind the wheel of the car attack in downtown Charlottesville on August 12, 2017.

    [Click for coverage of Day 1, Day 2, Day 3, Day 4, Day 5, and Day 6]

    The commonwealth played police body-camera footage from Charlottesville Police Detective Steven Young – who also testified on Friday - while he interacted with Fields at the scene of his arrest on Monticello Avenue. Fields repeatedly said "I'm sorry" during the video while he was being searched. When he is asked why, Fields said "I don't know... I didn't want to hurt anyone... I thought they were attacking me." Fields later said he thought antifa members were attacking him.

    Jurors also saw a detective reading Fields his Miranda rights. After hearing of many people being injured and one casualty on Fourth Street, Fields appears to hyperventilate for several minutes before calming down.

    Later, Fields was taken to the jail and questioned by a magistrate. Fields told authorities he was trying to go home and saw crowds forming around cars in front of him. He didn't know what to do and said he got a feeling he didn't know how to describe. Fields did not elaborate further in the video.

    The nine women and seven men on the jury - four of whom are alternates - have mostly heard testimony from victims of the car attack that occurred hours after the Unite the Right rally was held in downtown Charlottesville.

    Fields, who participated in the white nationalist rally, drove his Dodge Challenger into a group of counterprotesters marching onto Fourth Street. Thirty-two-year-old Heather Heyer was killed, and dozens were injured. The defendant is charged with first-degree murder, five counts of aggravated malicious wounding, three counts of malicious wounding, and one count of failing to stop at an accident involving a death.

    Tuesday, the jury saw text messages Fields had sent his mother, which included a picture of Adolf Hitler and "We're not the one [sic] who need to be careful" before the Unite the Right rally.

    The commonwealth also played a portion of two phone calls made by Fields from jail to his mother:


    * On March 21, 2018, Fields described the crowd at Fourth and Water streets to her as a violent group of terrorists and claimed the crowd was waving ISIS flags.

    * In a call on December 7, 2017, Fields said that Heather Heyer's mother was slandering his name. He called her an "anti-white communist" and said "she's the enemy."

    .

    Brent Meyer, a specialist with the FBI, investigated posts Fields made to social media. Jurors saw posts Fields made to his Instagram account in May 2017 that show a car colliding with bicyclists and text saying, "YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO PROTEST BUT IM LATE FOR WORK," as well as a private message of the same image with text saying, "PROTEST BUT IM LATE FOR WORK!!"

    Meyer said he was not able to determine if Fields was the original creator of those meme images.

    The defense called four members of law enforcement to the witness stand Tuesday, starting with Detective Jeremy Carper - he had also testified on Friday. Carper told the court that he did not find any weapons, helmets, or shields in Fields’ Dodge Challenger during his investigation. Photos taken by police of the car interior were shared with the jury.

    Officer Tammy Shifflett was assigned to direct traffic at the intersection of Fourth and Market streets on August 12, 2017. She testified that an angry and violent crowd approached her after police had declared an unlawful assembly in then-Emancipation Park – which was around 11:40 a.m.

    Shifflett said she called for assistance and tried to break up fights, but that she began feeling the effects of tear gas. Her commander instructed her to leave the location on Market Street. The officer said she was not aware if a replacement was going to be sent, but the traffic barrier was still in place when she left.

    During cross examination, Shifflett told the commonwealth that there was no crowd on Market Street at the time of the car attack – which occurred around 1:30 p.m. - and nobody was at the intersection of Fourth and Market streets.

    Deputy Paul Critzer of the Charlottesville Sheriff’s Office said he pursued Fields from Market Street with his lights and sirens on. The deputy said Fields seemed calm when he eventually stopped on Monticello Ave. He also said Fields stated, "I'm sorry" while being detained.

    Fred Kirschnick of the Albemarle County Sheriff's Office responded to the scene on Monticello Ave., as well. He said Fields appeared calm and wide-eyed, and was cooperative.

    Judge Moore told jurors that they should expect to hear from seven or eight witnesses Wednesday, and one more on Thursday. The judge said closing arguments could be presented Thursday afternoon.
