A 52-year-old man charged in the murder of British lawmaker Jo Cox is scheduled to appear in court.

West Yorkshire Police charged Thomas Mair with murder and other crimes in the attack. He is expected to appear in Westminster Magistrates' Court in London Saturday.

Mair has also been charged with inflicting grievous bodily harm, possession of a firearm with intent to commit a crime, and other gun charges.

Labour Party lawmaker Cox was killed Thursday after getting out of her car in the town of Birstall in her home constituency. She was 41.

Vigils have been held across the country in her memory.

Parliament has been recalled Monday to honor her.
