Jurors asked to watch the shocking video of accused murderer Ross Harris at his SUV while his son was dying inside the hot car. This was the third video they requested since the beginning of deliberations earlier this week. Prosecutors claimed during testimony that Ross Harris returned to the car at lunch on June 18, 2014, to check and see if baby Cooper Harris was still alive.

Justin Ross Harris was in the courtroom as the jurors watched him ominously approach his car in the Home Depot parking lot, open the door and throw a bag of lightbulbs into the vehicle. Cooper's father was sexting with multiple women the entire day that he left the child in the car, sending a note just minutes before leaving the 22-month-old in the SUV.

Ross Harris' defense claimed that he did not even look inside the car when he tossed the bag of lightbulbs inside, but the prosecution claimed that he would not have thrown delicate light bulbs in the car and instead was making sure his son was not alive in the vehicle. Experts testified that the car reached 120 degrees inside on the day Cooper was left in there and died.

During the video, Ross Harris approached his car, opened the door, tossed the package in and closed the door and left. While the jurors were watching the video, which they had moved closer to them, one young male juror turned around to an older male juror and nodded his head, according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution.

Ross Harris' lewd messages and naked sexts were proof of his "double life," and a motivation to kill his young child the prosecutors said about Cooper's father. He was sending naked pictures of his genitals to underage women as well as having sex with a prostitute three times in the weeks leading up to the baby's death, prosecutors claimed.
