LONDON - When asked his name in a London court, the man charged with the murder of British lawmaker Jo Cox said: "My name is death to traitors, freedom for Britain."

Thomas Mair appeared in Westminster Magistrates' Court charged with the murder of Cox, an attack that has shocked Britain and brought a temporary halt to campaigning ahead of next week's referendum on European Union membership.

Mair has been charged with murder, causing grievous bodily harm, and possession of a firearm and another offensive weapon.
