A judge is expected to consider whether to move the trial of a Georgia man accused of intentionally leaving his toddler son in a hot SUV to die.

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

Harris' attorneys filed a motion for a change of venue Friday afternoon, about three weeks into jury selection. They want the trial moved from Cobb County.

The 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.

Cobb County Superior Court Judge Mary Staley said she'll hear arguments on the motion Monday morning.

Harris is from Tuscaloosa, Alabama.
