(WXIA)  Support appears to be fading for the Georgia father charged with murder after leaving his 22-month-old son in a hot car.

Justin Ross Harris, 33, is charged with murder and second-degree cruelty to a child in the death of his son, Cooper. Harris told police that he forgot to drop his son off at daycare on June 18.

Harris initially garnered an enormous amount of online support after police filed murder charges against him. Thousands signed an online petition urging Cobb County District Attorney Vic Reynolds to drop the charges.

However, police issued a new arrest warrant on Wednesday that offered more details into the events surrounding the boy's death.
