(As soon as the trial begins or restarts from break, the above video will be LIVE from the court. You may have to refresh your browser.) 

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 Tuesday, Harris’ ex-wife and Cooper’s mother Leanna Taylor finished testifying in Harris’ defense. At the end of her testimony, however, she made it clear that she has no fondness for the man. “He destroyed my life,” Taylor said. “If I never see him again after this day, that’s fine.”

After Taylor, the defense called a neighbor, Harris’ brother, a coworker of Harris at Home Depot, Taylor’s mother, and her best friend.


Testimony will continue Wednesday morning at 8:30 ET.
