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 Wednesday, Harris’ college friend Billy Kirkpatrick testified about how Harris confided in him about his sexual misbehavior, specifically his pornography addiction. Kirkpatrick said Harris turned to him to be held accountable, and that he failed Harris in that role by not following up with him as often as he should have.
A coworker of Harris also testified that on the day of Cooper’s death, Harris discussed planning a birthday party for his son.
Testimony will continue Thursday morning at 8:30 ET.
