BRUNSWICK, Ga. (AP) — Police video shows a Georgia man crying, “What have I done? My boy!” after his toddler son was found dead in the back of a hot SUV.

But the 90-minute video from an officer’s patrol car watched by a jury Tuesday also shows Justin Ross Harris staying completely silent for long stretches.

Harris is being tried on murder charges in the June 2014 death of his 22-month-old son, Cooper. The video shows how he reacted after police arrived on the scene.

Harris tells an officer: “I was supposed to drop him off this morning and I didn’t do it. I swear I dropped him off.”

Prosecutors say Harris, who moved to Georgia from Alabama in 2012, intentionally killed his child. Defense attorneys say it was an accident.
