Posted: Updated:

Disturbing new details in the case of the toddler who died in a hot car in Georgia.

Detectives say Justin Harris was sexting with six different women while his son was strapped in his car seat. The 22 month old eventually died.

Investigators also say Harris and his wife Leann had two life insurance policies for the little boy.

Court documents show the couple admitted to doing internet searches on how long it takes for someone to die in a hot car.

A Georgia judge determined that there is enough evidence to support charges of murder and child cruelty against Justin Harris.

The case now goes to a grand jury, where the district attorney will seek a formal indictment.

The judge also denied Harris bond.
