A judge has agreed to defense attorneys' plea to move the trial of a Georgia man accused of intentionally leaving his toddler son in a hot SUV to die, according to multiple Atlanta media reports.

No new location has been named yet.

Ross Harris faces charges, including murder, and has been in jail since the day 22-month-old Cooper died in June 2014.

Harris' attorneys said they don't believe an impartial jury can be found in the county just northwest of Atlanta.

They said the questioning of potential jurors has shown that pretrial publicity has led many to believe Harris is guilty.
