City police have charged James Alex Fields Jr. with five more felonies related to the fatal car crash on Aug. 12 that killed one and injured 19 others.
According to a release, Fields now faces two additional charges of malicious wounding and three additional charges of aggravated malicious wounding. He’s already been charged with second-degree murder, three counts of malicious wounding and one count of hit-and-run.
“The victims related to these charges suffered serious injuries and in some cases permanent physical disabilities,” said Lt. Steve Upman in the release.
The investigation into the deadly crash remains under investigation by Charlottesville police, the FBI and the Department of Justice.
Upman said in the release that they are still investigating the “egregious assault” of Deandre Shakur Harris, a young man who sustained a head wound during the aftermath of Saturday’s failed white nationalist rally. He asked that anyone with information related to the incident to email firstname.lastname@example.org.
