Atlanta – A Georgia man charged after his son died after being left strapped in a hot car has been fired from his job. As reported by Reuters, a spokesperson for the former employer of Justin Ross Harris, 33, confirmed that he had been fired from his position as a computer specialist.
Catherine Woodling, a spokesperson for the Atlanta based Home Depot store chain where Harris worked, declined to provide details on why the company chose to terminate Harris’ employment.
Woodling is quoted as stating, “We don’t discuss the details of individual personnel matters.”
Police allege that Harris was conversing with women over the Internet while his son was sitting alone in the hot vehicle in the parking lot of the Home Depot chain. He told authorities that he had forgotten to drop the 22-month-old off at day care.
Prosecutors allege that Harris committed the act deliberately. Harris has been ordered by a judge to remain in jail without bond.
