The murder trial of Justin Ross Harris, who is accused of intentionally leaving his 22-month old son, Cooper, in a hot car to die, continues.
Harris is facing eight charges, including malice murder, felony murder and child cruelty. He is also facing charges for allegedly sexting underage girls on the day his son was left to die in the parking lot of the Home Depot Corporate Headquarters in Cobb County, Georgia. Harris claims that he is innocent and this was all a tragic accident.
On Friday, prosecutors played the entire police interview tape from when they questioned Justin Ross Harris. At the beginning of the tape, Harris seems rather calm, but then he suddenly starts wailing and crying.
“The worst fear for me is to leave my son in a hot car,” Harris told police officers.
At the end of the video, police told Harris that they were looking to charge him, at least with cruelty to a child. Harris insisted that he did not do this intentionally, and pointed out that he has no history of child abuse and no criminal record.
Testimony will continue Monday morning at 8:30 ET.
