(Newser) – Justin Ross Harris wasn't the only one who researched children dying in hot vehicles before his son died the same way—police say his wife, Leanna, researched the same subject. The mother of 22-month-old Cooper Harris "made similar statements regarding researching in car deaths and how it occurs," according to warrants obtained by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Unlike her husband, Leanna Harris has not been charged, although she was questioned in the hours after her son was found dead in the back of her husband's SUV. She says she loves her husband and is standing by him, reports CNN, which notes that the medical examiner is waiting on toxicology reports before ruling on the cause of the toddler's death.

Well, that would be "two death sentences". Right? A simple matter.

Wow, after reading these comments I can only wonder when the lethal injection will take place ? ( Although I missed the part where he is a racist, closet Nazi and sexual predator, the news media is getting lax in their sensationalism)

That bobvenn is an idiot! The MAIN fact is in or have you missed it you idiot!! The baby is DEAD, HOW CAN YOU FORGET YOUR OWN CHILD FOR 7 HOURS? A parent has to take his/her head out their ass and pay attention to the important stuff. And screw to grandpa bobvenn, as I said the facts are in AND the baby is in the ground.
