Attorney: Mom in hot car death case passed polygraph

The wife of a Georgia man charged with murdering his toddler by leaving the child in a hot car for hours this summer has passed a polygraph test, her lawyer said Monday. The attorney for Leanna Harris says her husband, Justin Ross Harris left their son Cooper in the car by accident. Ross Harris is charge with eight counts, including malice murder and two counts of felony murder. He is scheduled to appear in court this week. Prosecutors say both Harris and Leanna Harris, had searched online for how hot a car has to be to kill a child. In interview with Anderson, her attorney, Lawrence Zimmerman explains why his client took a polygraph despite claiming she has done nothing wrong. The exam was not sanctioned by the court and is not admissible in Georgia criminal court.

    I am so sorry I read and watched this. What do you mean she forgot her baby? How I pray that the court forgets about her and throws her in prison for life
