The jury has been deliberating since Monday afternoon in the murder trial of Justin Ross Harris, who is accused of intentionally leaving his 22-month-old son, Cooper, in a hot vehicle to die.

Numerous jurors scribbled notes as they watched the portion of the tape where Harris recounts his schedule on the day of Cooper's death. "I got in my auto and instead of going from here to here, I went straight to work", Harris said. A number of jurors kept close notes of their interactions, but it is unknown what the sticking point could be - whether it's Harris' state of mind, genuineness of his actions or something else from the time immediately following Cooper's death.

Jurors also asked to re-watch the police video of Harris and Leanna.

"I didn't mean it", Harris said.

The surveillance footage showed Harris, accused of leaving his 22-month-old son Cooper strapped in his vehicle seat for roughly seven hours, being interviewed by Cobb County police and reuniting with his then-wife Leanna.

Harris, who moved to Georgia from Alabama in 2012, told police he forgot to take the boy to day care.

Jurors began deliberating Tuesday but were dismissed early so they could vote in the election. Prosecutors say Harris intentionally left his 22-month-old son, Cooper, to die his SUV in the parking lot of his suburban Atlanta workplace June 18, 2014.
