Britain mourned lawmaker Jo Cox Friday after a man with suspected neo-Nazi links and a history of mental illness was arrested over a killing that has thrown next week's referendum on EU membership into limbo.Cox, 41, a supporter of Britain remaining in the European Union, was both shot and stabbed Thursday by a man who witnesses said shouted "Britain First" in her own electoral district near Leeds in the county of West Yorkshire in northern England.British media named the man as Thomas Mair.Britain First, a far-right nationalist group, denied any links with Mair but a U.S. civil rights group said he had been associated in the past with a neo-Nazi organization.Members of the public and lawmakers, many weeping, laid flowers outside the Houses of Parliament. Beside a picture of Cox smiling, there were dozens of white candles, bunches of flowers and messages of condolence. Cameron said the killing of Cox, who had worked on U.S. President Barack Obama's 2008 election campaign, was a tragedy.
