GEORGIA (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - The Georgia man accused of purposely leaving his child in a car to die is now out of a job.

Justin Ross Harris, who worked for two years at the Home Depot's corporate offices in the Atlanta suburb of Smyrna, was let go on Thursday.

A spokesperson for the company did not give details of the termination.
