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 Monday.
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 Monday, the prosecution called the teenager to the stand who says she exchanged sexual text messages with Justin Ross Harris. In addition, the prosecutor, Chuck Boring, entered into evidence a picture of Harris’ penis that he allegedly sent to the young girl. The prosecution also called Alex Hall to the stand. In probably the most telling testimony, he told the jurors that he sent Harris the reddit thread r/childfree in a chat. Harris immediately responded, “grossness.”
Testimony will continue Tuesday morning at 8:30 ET.
