MARIETTA, GA (WALB) - Justin Ross Harris is charged with killing his young son by leaving him in a hot car in Cobb County. The judge says he is convinced there's enough evidence to bind Harris over for trial, and bond was denied.

Cobb County Police Detective Phil Stoddard testified at a hearing Thursday about Justin Ross Harris, whose 22-month-old son Cooper died inside the hot car June 18. Stoddard described evidence that prosecutors say shows that Harris intentionally left the child inside the car. 

The detective says Harris, who told police he accidentally forgot to take the boy to day care, had been exchanging nude photos with several women the day the child died.

Stoddard also says Harris had done an Internet search for "how to survive in prison." The detective says after the boy died, Harris showed no emotion while being interviewed by investigators. 

Attorney Maddox Kilgore says his client, Justin Ross Harris, had lunch with two friends the day the boy died and then came back to his SUV to put a couple of light bulbs he had purchased inside the vehicle.Kil gore says Harris wouldn't have led his friends right up to the car if he had left the boy inside intentionally. Kilgore also said Harris had texted his wife later that afternoon, asking when she was going to pick up their son.
