The Lexington Herald Leader reports the man accused of murdering a woman during a white supremacy rally grew up loving the Nazis.

Fields’ ex-high school teacher, Derek Weimer, told WCPO-TV in Cincinnati that Fields was a quiet student who had some “radical ideas on race.” Weimer told the station that he taught history to Fields at Randall K. Cooper High School in Union, Ky.

“He was very infatuated with the Nazis, with Adolf Hitler. He also had a huge military history, especially with German military history and World War II. But, he was pretty infatuated with that stuff,” Weimer told WCPO-TV.

The teacher also told WCPO that Fields had wanted to join the Army, but couldn’t because of his mental health history.
