Man accused in his son’s death set to go to trial in September

Justin Ross Harris is accused of intentionally leaving his toddler son in his hot SUV to die in June of 2014. His trial will start September 12 and will be held in the coastal city of Brunswich, GA.

Harris is 35 years old and faces charges including murder. Police said his 22-month-old son Cooper Harris spent seven hours in the car on a day where temperatures reached almost 90 degrees.

Defense attorneys had argued extensive pretrial publicity had resulted in an "atmosphere of hostility."

Prosecutors argued the request to move the trial was a defense strategy.
