As Justin Ross Harris’ murder trail resumes, his ex-wife, Leanna Harris, took the stands to defend her former husband against the murder charges he faces for leaving their 1-year-old son Cooper inside a hot car. And during her super emotional testimony, the mom broke down in tears, expressing about how much she misses her baby son! SO sad!
Leanna Harris, who divorced Justin Ross Harris earlier this year, testified on Oct. 31 that although Justin was not the best husband, he most certainly was a loving and attentive father. But in addition to defending Justin against the murder charges he faces for leaving their son Cooper, who was 22 months old at the time of his death, in a hot car for seven hours, Leanna also recounted the day she found out her son had died two years ago. And you better believe her testimony was beyond emotional!

During her testimony, the defense asked Leanna to talk about Cooper, it was then Leanna burst into tears as she talked about how much she “misses” her little boy. Tearing up, looking at one of the last photos of her young son, Leanna revealed Justin sent her a pic of Cooper sleeping the week before the baby’s death. And of the day Cooper was killed inside a hot car, Leanna told the court that she didn’t want to go into her house that night.
“It was like I knew if I went into my house it would be real and I didn’t want it to be real,” the former mother said. When she finally did go inside, she said she went straight to Cooper’s room, crawled in his bed, and just cried. “I finally was able to cry.”
Leanna continued, explaining that the whole night “didn’t feel real” and neither did the weeks that followed. “It felt like I was gonna wake up. This is a nightmare,” she said. “It was like I was going out of my mind. My body was there but it didn’t feel like I was all there.” Such a tragic story.
Tell us, HollywoodLifers — do you think Justin intentionally harmed Cooper?
