MARIETTA, Georgia — A lawyer says the wife of a Georgia man accused of intentionally leaving his toddler son to die in a hot SUV is seeking a divorce.

Attorney Lawrence Zimmerman said in an emailed statement that Leanna Harris has filed for divorce. Zimmerman said it's a private matter and he won't comment further.

Justin Ross Harris is accused of leaving 22-month-old Cooper to die in June 2014. He's been held without bond since then on multiple charges, including murder. He's set for trial in April. His attorneys have called the death a tragic accident.

Police have said Harris was unhappy in his marriage and exchanged sexually explicit messages with multiple women, including an underage teen.

Harris is from Tuscaloosa, Alabama, and moved to Georgia in 2012 to work for Home Depot.
