Ross Harris trial: Oct. 14

- More testimony about the state of mind which Ross Harris was leading up to and the day of the death of little Cooper Harris. Harris, 35, is a Cobb County man charged with murder in the June 2014 death of his 22-month-old son, Cooper, who was found dead in the back seat of Harris's hot SUV. Prosecutors believe he intentionally left his son to die at a time when Harris was unhappy in his marriage and looking for relationships with other women. Defense attorneys said the death was a tragic accident. In April, the trial was moved from Cobb County to Glynn County.

Here are some of the highlights of the day in court:
