Attorney: 5 tips for Justin Ross Harris' defense

Justin Ross Harris is charged with murder after cops say he left his 22-month-old son strapped into his car seat to die on a hot summer day last month.

During a probable cause hearing last week, prosecutors depicted the Georgia dad as an unfaithful husband who wanted a child-free life. Evidence presented at that hearing included Internet searches for how hot it needs to be for a child to die in a car, alleged sexting between Harris and six women -- one of whom was corresponding with him while his son, Cooper, was dying in the car -- and an e-mail message ignored by Harris from the day care center where little Cooper was supposed to be that day.

Investigators are searching for the beautiful, pregnant wife of a U.S. marine corporal who was last seen over a week ago.  19-year-old Erin Corwin was reportedly last seen leaving her Twentynine Palms, CA home around 7 a.m. on June 28 to go to nearby Joshua Tree National Park.  Her husband of a year and a half Jonathan reported her missing the next day.  Days after she disappeared, Erin's mother Lore Heavilin found out that her daughter was about 3 months pregnant. 

Investigators have been searching the park, which is over 1,000 square miles, for any trace of Erin.  So far, the only clue they've found is her car, which was discovered 2 days after she vanished in Twentynine Palms, near the marine base where her husband is stationed.  Police are now calling her disappearance suspicious, and homicide detectives have been brought in.
