BRUNSWICK, Ga. – The murder trial of a man accused of intentionally leaving his 22-month-old son in a hot SUV to die is expected to resume Tuesday, days after Hurricane Matthew paused the case.
Trial recessed Thursday ahead of the storm. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports (http://on-ajc.com/2e8dFW5 ) the courts want to give jurors and everyone else living in the Brunswick area a chance to assess their homes for damages after Matthew brushed past.
Cobb County Court administrator Tom Charron says testimony is unlikely Tuesday.
Prosecutors say Justin Ross Harris intentionally killed his son Cooper by leaving him for hours in a vehicle parked outside the father's workplace in Cobb County, near Atlanta. Cooper's lawyers called the death accidental.
Pretrial publicity prompted the trial's move to Brunswick.
Harris moved to Georgia from Alabama in 2012.
