Dad charged in toddler’s hot car death fired from job

TNS Regional News • Jul 12, 2014 at 8:07 AM

Justin Ross Harris, the father of the 22-month-old toddler who died after being left in the family’s SUV for seven hours, has been terminated from Home Depot.

Company spokesman Stephen Holmes confirmed Harris was let go in a brief statement to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

“We do not get into the details of individual personnel matters,” he said in the statement.

Cooper Harris died June 18 in the SUV parked outside the Home Depot office where Ross Harris worked. The father was arrested the same night and charged with child cruelty and felony murder.

Holmes said Harris has been on a leave of absence without pay since his arrest.
