The Denver Post - - NEWS -

at­lanta» A judge is set to sen­tence a Ge­or­gia man Mon­day af­ter a jury last month found that he in­ten­tion­ally left his tod­dler son in a hot SUV to die.

A jury con­victed Justin Ross Har­ris, 36, in the June 2014 death of his 22-mon­thold son, Cooper.

Po­lice were sus­pi­cious from the start and took Har­ris into cus­tody in the strip mall park­ing lot where he had pulled over and re­moved his son’s life­less body from the SUV. Har­ris’ de­fense at­tor­neys ar­gued that he was a lov­ing fa­ther and that while he was re­spon­si­ble for the boy’s death, it was a tragic ac­ci­dent.
