James Alex Fields Jr. was sentenced to life in prison by a jury in Charlottesville, Virginia, Tuesday for killing Heather Heyer and seriously injuring 35 others in August.

The jury said that Fields should be sentenced to life plus 419 years in prison and $480,000 in fines. The jury made its recommendation a day after listening to emotional statements from survivors who described devastating injuries and complicated recoveries.

Fields slammed his car into a crowd of counterprotesters, killing 32-year-old Heyer and injuring dozens more. Earlier in the day, he was photographed marching with Vanguard America, a neo-Nazi group, during the rally.
