After more than 15 days of statements, visuals and testimonies from witnesses, the state rested its case against Ross Harris on Friday.
In Thursday's request for a mistrial, lead defense attorney Maddox Kilgore said the jury was unduly biased by the jury being allowed to physically view the SUV that Ross Harris had driven where little Cooper Harris died. After listening to Kilgore's arguments along with a rebuttal from the state, Judge Staley denied the defense motion.
Ross Harris faces a number of charges, including malice murder and felony murder in the June 2014 death of his 22-month-old son, Cooper Harris. The toddler died of hyperthermia in the back seat of Harris' SUV at an office park in Vinings. The defense claims the incident was a tragic accident.
The defense will resume calling witnesses on Monday. Next week's witnesses will likely include Harris' ex-wife, Leanna Taylor.
