Two Virginia state troopers also died when their surveillance helicopter crashed near the protests.

Fields was indicted on one federal count of a hate crime resulting in Heyer's death, 28 counts of hate crimes for causing bodily injury and involving an attempt to kill, and one count of racially motivated violent interference with a federally protected activity.
