After the verdict was read in court, some of those who were injured embraced Heyer's mother, Susan Bro. A jury also found Fields guilty of five counts of aggravated malicious wounding, three counts of malicious wounding, and one hit and run count for injuring dozens of people at the demonstration.
The car-ramming capped a day of tension and physical clashes between hundreds of white supremacists and neo-Nazis who had assembled in Charlottesville to protest against the removal of statues commemorating two Confederate generals of the United States Civil War, and groups of opposing demonstrators.
The jury deliberated for about seven hours before convicting James Fields, 21, of all charges stemming from the deadly attack that occurred after police declared an unlawful assembly and cleared a city park of white supremacists gathered for the "Unite the Right" rally.

In order to build their case of a pre-meditated attack, prosecutors presented a text Fields sent to his mother before departing for the rally after she had asked him to be careful. "We're not the one who need to be careful", Fields replied in a misspelled text message on August 11, 2017.

He posted the meme publicly to his Instagram page and sent a similar image as a private message to a friend in May 2017.
Prosecutors said Fields, who espoused white supremacist beliefs and took part in the "Unite the Right" rally in Charlottesville, had hate and violence on his mind when he plowed his vehicle into the crowd.
Sentencing will begin from Monday, with jurors given the option to recommend between 20 years and life for the murder conviction.
The jury had the option of convicting Fields on lesser charges, but found he maliciously, willfully and deliberately drove into the crowd near 4th and Water streets. No trial has been scheduled yet.
