The Daily Progress reported Thursday that various kinds of video footage submitted in the case against James Alex Fields Jr. can be viewed at the courthouse in Charlottesville.

The footage shows various angles of Fields driving his Dodge Challenger into a crowd. There's also video from a police helicopter and footage from members of the crowd Fields slammed into.

More footage shows Fields' arrest and interrogation as well as first responders attending to the woman who was killed, Heather Heyer, and injured counterprotesters.

Fields was found guilty of first-degree murder and sentenced to life in prison earlier this month.
