A judge on Monday denied bail to a man accused of ramming a car into a group of protesters in Charlottesville in the U.S. state of Virginia, killing one and injuring 19 others.

Twenty-year-old James Fields of Ohio was denied bail and charged with second-degree murder, three counts of malicious wounding and one count of hit-and-run, according a district court in Charlottesville.

The next hearing for Fields is set for Aug. 25, according to the court.

Fields rammed his Dodge Challenger into a group of protesters demonstrating against White supremacist groups in Charlottesville Saturday, killing a 32-year-old woman. He was arrested by police after attempting to flee from the scene.

A teacher who taught Fields said the young man had revealed radical thoughts and was fascinated with Nazism, U.S. media reported.

Thousands of white nationalists, neo-Confederates and right-wing protesters, as well as groups that oppose them, clashed Saturday in Charlottesville, resulting in three deaths.
