Posted: Updated:

ATLANTA, Ga. -

A detective says a Georgia man charged with murder in his young son's death had looked at websites that advocated for not having children before the toddler died inside a hot SUV.Cobb County Police Detective Phil Stoddard testified at a hearing Thursday about Justin Ross Harris, whose 22-month-old son Cooper died inside the hot car June 18.

Stoddard described evidence that prosecutors say shows that Harris intentionally left the child inside the car. The detective says Harris, who told police he accidentally forgot to take the boy to day care, had been exchanging nude photos with several women the day the child died.

Stoddard also says Harris had done an Internet search for "how to survive in prison."

The detective says after the boy died, Harris showed no emotion while being interviewed by investigators.
