Court is canceled on Monday due to Hurricane Matthew for the trial of Justin Ross Harris, who is accused of intentionally leaving his 22-month old son, Cooper, in a SUV to die. The trial is expected to resume on Tuesday morning, weather permitting. 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.
Court was canceled last Thursday and Friday as well. The last witnesses to testify described what they saw the day of Cooper’s death. The court heard testimony from witnesses who saw Justin Ross Harris after he pulled over and exited his car screaming about his son, as well as officers who responded to the scene.
