Lawyers for Justin Ross Harris file appeal of his conviction

(WIAT) — Harris was found guilty in the death of his toddler son, Cooper. He was later sentenced to life in prison without parole.

His defense says prejudicial testimony made a fair trial impossible.

Harris’ lawyers are asking for a new trial, which is the first step in what’s likely to be a long appeals process.
