He was quickly drowned out by shouts, then punched and chased before police moved in.

Fields, now the subject of a federal civil rights investigation, was arrested shortly after and charged with one count of second-degree murder, three counts of malicious wounding, and another count related to the hit- and-run, police said.

However, Fields was turned down and Weimer said he was later surprised to hear Fields had enlisted after graduation.

Just hours before the attack, pictures show Fields at the alt-right rally dressed in the de facto uniform of a white supremacist group carrying a shield with racist symbols.

The woman who was killed in the incident was named as Heather Heyer, 32. The teacher said the project was well-written and researched but appeared to be a "big lovefest for the German military and the Waffen-SS".

The suspect's former high school teacher, Derek Weimer, described Fields as a "very misguided and disillusioned" individual to the Cinnicinati Tribune. "I didn't know it was white supremacist".

Judge Robert Downer set an August 25 hearing for the 20-year-old.

Fields' mother Samantha Bloom said he told her in a text message last week that he had taken time off from work to go to a rally. "I thought it had something to do with Trump", she said.

"I don't really talk to him about his political views", she said.

Many protesters waved Confederate flags and chanted fascist and nationalist slogans.

They also urged US President Donald Trump to forcefully denounce the organisations, some of which specifically cited Mr Trump's election after a campaign of racially charged rhetoric as validation of their beliefs.

These calls operate in direct contract to Bloom's response when informed of her son's alleged actions in Charlottesville.
