A judge on Monday denied bond for James Fields Jr., the man suspected of killing a woman as he allegedly mowed down a group of counterprotesters at a white supremacist rally.

James Fields, 20, is accused of killing 32-year-old Heather Heyer and injuring 19 others by intentionally driving his vehicle into them.

James Alex Fields of Ohio's arrest was confirmed by the local jail superintendent and he is now being held without bail for the murder of a 32-year old woman.

The charges include not only second-degree murder but three counts of malicious wounding and hit and run.

This weekend saw multiple incidents of violence at a counter protest to an alt-right/white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, VA, two of which resulted in fatalities.

Following a long silence on the initial far-right rally, US President Donald Trump spoke out to condemn the "violence on many sides" after the clashes on Saturday.

James Alex Fields Jr., who is now living in Maumee, Ohio, has given the people in that small town a scare, and they took to the streets to denounce his actions and his beliefs.

The authorities arrested Fields shortly thereafter. "Trump's not a white supremacist", Samantha Bloom told The Associated Press late Saturday.

Fields, seen here just before the incident wearing the unofficial uniform of a white supremacist group, was attending the "Unite The Right Rally" - a White Nationalist protest against plans to remove a Confederate statue from a public park.

The judge said that Fields will receive a preliminary hearing on August 25.

Fields joined the army in 2015, but remained on active duty for less than four months.

The 911 records show that Mr Fields's mother called a police agency in Kentucky several times in 2010 and 2011.
