A judge ruled Thursday that there is probable cause to charge a man in the death of his son after he left the boy on a hot Georgia day in an SUV. The judge in Marietta, Georgia, also denied bond for Justin Ross Harris. Harris is charged with murder and second-degree child cruelty in the June 18 death of his son Cooper. Cooper died after being left in the car for more than 7 hours while Harris was at work. Harris says he simply forgot his child was in the back seat. Cobb County police detective Phil Stoddard said Harris had been exchanging nude photos with several women the day the child died. The detective also testified that the Georgia couple had 2 life insurance policies for the toddler and that Harris had looked at websites that advocated child-free living.
