>> A Georgia man accused of murdering his toddler son by leaving him in a hot car while he sent sexually explicit text messages to teenagers was found guilty Monday. 35 year old year old Justin Ross Harris faces life in prison for leaving his 22 month old, Cooper, in a locked SUV for seven hours on a sweltering day in Atlanta.

Rich McKay has been following the story for Reuters. Prosecutors said Harris did it on purpose, so he could pursue a new life without his wife and child. Harris was also found guilty for child cruelty, and sex crimes for sending explicit texts to three underage girls, including some on the day his son died.

Harris did not testify, but wept several times during the trial. Especially as photographs of his dead son were shown to the jury.
