The ex-wife of a Georgia man charged after their son died in a hot SUV says he didn't intend to kill the toddler.

But a prosecutor noted how little the ex-wife knew of Justin Ross Harris' darker side. Harris had sex with a prostitute shortly before the death and had sent sexual text messages to a teenager.

Harris' ex-wife Leanna Taylor was scheduled to return to the witness stand Tuesday in the trial of her former husband. He is charged with murder in the June 14 death of the couple's 22-month-old son, Cooper.

Taylor said Monday that Harris loved their son and would not have left the boy to die intentionally.

Prosecutor Chuck Boring pressed Taylor about her ex-husband's "double life."
