WATCH LIVE: Jury Selection for Justin Ross Harris Hot Car Death Trial

by Ronn Blitzer | 9:44 am, September 21st, 2016

Jury selection is currently taking place for the murder trial of Justin Ross Harris. Harris is accused of intentionally leaving his 22-month-old son Cooper in a hot car, where the child died while Harris was at work. The case is being tried in Brunswick, Georgia, after attorneys failed to select an impartial jury in local Cobb County.

Judge Mary Staley Clark is looking for between 42 and 50 people to make up the jury pool, before it gets narrowed down to a 12-person jury plus four alternates. So far, 29 people have been approved. The trial is scheduled to begin on October 3.

LawNewz.com will be providing continuing coverage of the trial, including live streaming video and legal analysis.

Justin Ross Harris trial moved, still finds opinionated jurors

Published:Tuesday, September 20th 2016, 4:53 pm CDT
Updated:Tuesday, September 20th 2016, 5:17 pm CDT


By Vince Sims

BRUNSWICK, GA (CBS46) -
Even though Brunswick is about 300 miles from Cobb County, people down here still heard about the Justin Ross Harris case on local and national news.

"Your exposure to information started over two years ago when this story first was published in the news?" defense attorney Maddox Kilgore asked one potential juror.

So attorneys had to find out just what potential jurors knew about this case.

"Somebody left some child in a car and left the child in there all day in the heat," one potential juror said.

With the information people have heard so far, attorneys had to figure out if this has shaped their opinions.

"Was that...he was guilty or that he was not guilty?" Kilgore asked.

Jury has been selected....16 total (12 plus 4 alternates)...8 women and 8 men.  Don't know which are alternates until deliberations.

ETA: Am I right on this AD?? Perhaps they already know who the official 12 are if they go in order chosen?

Prostitute’s testimony on Ross Harris tryst will be allowed

Christian Boone  - The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
12:12 p.m Monday, Oct. 3, 2016 | Filed in Atlanta News

The judge in the hot car death trial on Monday denied a defense motion to block the testimony of a prostitute who said she was “90 percent” certain Justin Ross Harris was one of her clients.

The prostitute said the former Home Depot web developer paid $125 for a 30-minute session, which took place less than three weeks before Harris’ 22-month-old son was found dead inside a hot SUV. She told a Cobb police detective that she remembered Harris as “dumpy” with a “large head,” adding that he stood out because most of her customers are African-American.

Police had tracked down the witness from three phone calls Harris allegedly placed from his work cell phone. The defense had argued that the woman’s identification was obtained under the threat of arrest, which Cobb police denied.

Minute-by-minute: Day 1 of the Ross Harris hot car death trial

by: Hope Jensen Updated: Oct 3, 2016 - 5:10 PM

GLYNN COUNTY, Ga. - It’s been more than two years since 22-month-old Cooper Harris died in the back seat of a hot SUV outside a Cobb County office building.

His father, Ross Harris, is now on trial for his death.

Follow minute-by-minute coverage of the case below:


5:07 p.m.: After a lengthy break, that was initially scheduled to be 10 minutes, court resumes. Judge Mary Staley announces that court will recess for the day and the defense team's opening statement will be made at 9 a.m. Tuesday morning.

-----

3:28 p.m.: Judge Mary Staley recesses court for mid-afternoon break

-----

3:27 p.m.: "Death, deception and a double life. On June 18, 2014 the defendant killed Cooper. When the defendant killed, he committed murder and the evidence will prove this beyond a reasonable doubt," Boring told the jurors as he wrapped up his opening statement.

-----

3:17 p.m.: Prosecutors say Harris received an email from Cooper's day care, Little Apron Academy, as his son was dying inside his hot car. He also texted his wife around 3:15 p.m. that day asking her, "When are you going to get my buddy?"

-----

3:15 p.m.: Boring says Harris googled vacations the day before his son's death. Those vacations included Carnival cruises and Sandals vacations to places like Antigua.

-----

3:10 p.m.: Prosecutors say Harris used to take a photo of Cooper at day care everyday and send it to his wife to let her know he made it safely. Two weeks before Cooper's death, day care workers say he stopped sending the photos and told them, "He's just getting too old for that."

-----

3:06 p.m.: Boring says Harris was living a double life. He says Harris had relationships with multiple women.

-----

3:00 p.m.: Boring says what Harris did was clearly malice murder: "Theres nothing more malicious than what was done to this child's body, baking in the car for seven hours."

-----

2:50 p.m.: Boring says Harris backed his car into a parking space when he got to the office that morning. His car does not have a backup camera and Cooper's car seat was in the back seat. Prosecutors insist he would have seen his son at that time.

-----

2:45 p.m.: Boring says Harris told police he didn't do it intentionally before that was even a question. He says Harris told detectives after his arrest, "There was no malicious intent."


-----

2:43 p.m.: Boring says Harris told police that just five days before his son's death, Harris watched a video made by a veterinarian called, "How hot does it get in a parked car."

-----

2:35 p.m.: Prosecution says Harris returned to his car at lunch, leaned into the driver's side and threw a bag into the passenger seat. Boring says as Harris walks away, a person walked past him towards his car. Boring says Harris stopped and pulled out his phone as he watched the person walk past his car. When the person keeps walking, Harris puts his phone away and walks back inside.

-----

2:23: Boring says that Cooper's head was right next to the driver's seat and would have been visible to Harris. He says before leaving Chick-fil-A that morning, Cooper said "school" to Harris, yet just one minute later, Harris drove past the light where he would have turned to take Cooper to day care. He says Harris alleges that he just forgot.

-----

2:16 p.m.: Boring says as he sat in a patrol car after his arrest, Harris complained that "it's hot in the back of the car."

----

2:15 p.m. Boring says Harris had planned to be an advocate for hot car deaths after Cooper's death.

----

2:10 p.m.: Boring goes through the timing of what happened on June 18, 2014. He says after arriving at the office, just minutes after putting his son in his car seat at a Chick-fil-A .6 miles away, Harris spent at least 30 seconds in and around his car before going into work. Boring says Harris then went back to his car at lunch.

[READ: Minute-by-minute: The day Cooper Harris died]

-----

2:03 p.m.: Boring goes through each count Harris is facing. Boring says the biggest question in this trial is, "Did the defendant INTEND to kill Cooper Harris?" Boring says counts 1, 2 and 4 (malice murder, felony murder and cruelty to children in the first degree) all require intent. He says he has no doubt that after hearing the evidence in this case, Harris will be convicted on all counts.

----

2:00 p.m.: Senior ADA Chuck Boring say Harris did not cry, called his wife instead of 911 after pulling his son from the backseat of the car in the Akers Mill parking lot.

----

1:53 p.m.: Prosecution says just before he left his son in a hot car, Harris texted a woman, "I love my son and all but we both need escapes."

Prosecutors: Toddler said "school" minutes before dad left him in hot car (Video)

Greg Rossino, WXIA 5:47 PM. EDT October 03, 2016

~Snipped~

During opening statements, the prosecutors brought to light new details of the day Cooper died as well as what Harris has been doing leading up to the day including:
• The prosecution said Harris mentioned Cooper said "school" after breakfast, knowing he was headed to daycare.
• During detainment, Harris complained to officers that it was hot in the back of their patrol car.
• Harris backed car into a space with no camera when at work. Prosecutor insists he saw his son.
• Two days prior to son's death, Harris met with a prostitute in a Marietta hotel and messaged with a 15-year-old girl.
• Harris complained about jail having an uncomfortable bed and tin toilet.
• Harris told numerous women online, in person that he was unhappy in marriage. He lies to police about phone code to detectives. Tried to talk his way out of the crime. Familiarized himself with what would be his defense and tried to argue against them. Tries to get them to not do a “second look again.” Refers to TV: “There’s a man just like me who’s now an advocate.” Brings up his dispatcher job in Tuscaloosa.

Harris thot it was hot in the backseat? Yet, he left a child back there... unable to get free, to save himself from the certainty of misery and death. How despicable.  


This was the worst imaginable death for a child.' Justin Ross Harris left his 22-month-old son to die in 120-degree car ON PURPOSE - and was sexting a 16-year-old girl while the boy was 'cooking to death,' jurors hear

"...Boring said that instead of thinking about his son, Harris had spent the day messaging an underage girl.

'On that day, when his son was cooking to death, he was texting with a 16-year-old girl, trying to get photos of her vaginal area.' ..."



'While he was doing that all day, his son was out in the car, dying, slowly, painfully... When he was point-six of a mile from the Chick-fil-A where he had breakfast with his son, he was texting a...woman [saying] "I hate being married with kids. The novelty has worn off and I have nothing to show for it."'

Oh, friends, I'm in Arizona. We know all about the horror of car deaths. We just had one, actually. Sad Heat stroke is, indeed, complete misery. Seizures, nausea, gasping for air. This child had claw marks on his face he was so distressed as he suffocated. I'm sorry to put that image in your mind but I'm so outraged, I can't look at that baby's face. I hope he gets life and they plaster his jail cell with pictures of the baby who suffered so much. RIP, dear baby. I pray for your soul.

Ross Harris Trial-  Day 2

---------

Ross Harris murder trial: Defense to deliver opening statements

BRUNSWICK, Ga. - The defense will deliver opening statements Tuesday in the Ross Harris murder trial.

Opening statements began Monday afternoon in the trial of the Cobb County father accused of leaving his toddler son in a hot car to die. During opening statements, prosecutors laid out their case against Harris, stating he wanted to escape his role as a husband and father.

Prosecutor Chuck Boring told jurors this case is about death, deception and the double life that Ross Harris was leading. Attorney Boring told the six women and six men from Glynn county that Harris communicated with 30 people while his son was dying in his SUV in the Home Depot tree house parking lot.

~Snipped~

Prior to opening statements Detective Ralph Escamillo of the Cobb County Police Department took the stand to describe the undercover sting operation that lead him to an escort who Harris had been contacting in May of 2014. The woman confirmed that she had met up with Harris multiple times that month. She continuously referred to Harris as being “fat and dumpy.” Despite the defense’s objections, Judge Mary Staley agreed that the escorts meeting with Escamillo will remain far game in the trial.

~Snipped~

Prosecutors believe Harris intentionally left his son to die at a time when Harris was unhappy in his marriage and looking for relationships with other women. Defense attorneys say the death was a tragic accident.

The defense will get its turn at opening statements Tuesday.

Harris responsible for Cooper’s death, but not a criminal, lawyer says

Ross Harris is responsible for his son Cooper’s death and he’s also earned every bit of shame for his “nasty, filthy” sexual promiscuity, his lawyer told jurors Tuesday.

But Harris’ responsibility doesn’t translate into criminal behavior, defense attorney Maddox Kilgore said during a powerful and sometimes emotional opening statement. As Kilgore spoke to jurors, Harris repeatedly wiped tears away from his eyes.

“Ross’s sex life, no matter how perverse and nasty and wrong … doesn’t have a thing to do with the fact he forgot that little boy,” he said.

Kilgore’s opening marks the first time he’s been able to try and convince jurors that Harris is not guilty of the murder of his 22-month-old son Cooper on June 18, 2014, when he left his son in his hot car to die.
