Cobb County Detention Center

Tuscaloosa native Justin Ross Harris was indicted by a grand jury in the death of his toddler son Cooper on eight counts, including malice murder and two counts of felony murder.

The 33-year-old Harris was arrested in June and police have maintained that he knew his son was in the car for hours.

The other five charges are as follows: first-degree cruelty to children, second-degree cruelty to children, criminal attempt to commit a felony (sexual exploitation of a minor) and two counts of dissemination of harmful material to minors.

The indictment also read that on June 18, Harris “did unlawfully, and with malice aforethought, cause the death of Cooper Harris … by placing said Cooper Harris into a child car seat and leaving him alone in a hot motor vehicle,” according to CNN.

ABC News spoke with Harris’ attorney who continues to insist his client is innocent of the charges.
