ORIGINAL STORY (5:46 p.m.): 
The father embroiled in allegations that he intentionally left his son to die in a hot car now has one more thing to worry about.

Justin Ross Harris, who is facing felony murder and second-degree child cruelty following the death of his 22-month-old son Cooper, has been terminated from his position at Home Depot, FOX 5 Atlanta reports.

During a probable cause hearing held on July 3, police testified that Harris had performed online searches on ways to live a "child-free life," and had been sexting with up to six girls, one as young as 17 years old, during the day he left Cooper in his car.

Harris spent seven hours at work at Home Depot while Cooper remained strapped into the car, police said. They even had video of Harris coming out to the car on his lunch break, putting light bulbs he had bought into the car, and leaving his son inside the car.

Police also testified that Harris was calm and composed during interviews with them, but became agitated when left alone with his wife. Allegedly, Harris told his wife he was worried about losing his job.

Ross worked for Home Depot as a web developer in their corporate offices at 2455 Paces Ferry Road before his Thursday termination.

Stoddard alleged that Leanna Harris made an odd remark to her husband while the two were in an interview room after Ross Harris' arrest. Ross told Leanna that Cooper looked peaceful and said, "I dreaded how he would look," Stoddard said. At another point, Stoddard said, Leanna Harris asked her husband what he had said to police. "She asked him -- she had him sit down, and he starts going through this. And she looks at him, and she's like, 'Well, did you say too much?' " the detective testified.
