A jury panel has been selected for the murder trial of Justin Ross Harris, and attorneys are now arguing motions at a pre-trial hearing, and conducting additional questioning of a juror who had previously been selected. Harris is accused of intentionally killing his 22-month-old son Cooper by leaving him in a hot car while he was at work.
A panel of 45 jurors was chosen for the case, over several days of questioning. The court will be taking next week off, and then jurors will return on October 3 for the final selection of a 12-person jury plus four alternates. Opening statements in the trial are scheduled to begin once the jury is in place.
LawNewz.com will be providing continuous coverage of the case, including live streaming coverage of the trial and legal analysis.
