BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) -

Cobb County, Georgia police have denied a request from Cooper Harris' mother to get pictures off a laptop to be used at his funeral in Tuscaloosa.

The family is trying to obtain pictures from the family's laptop that was seized as a part of the investigation into Cooper's father Justin Ross Harris.

Harris has been charged with felony murder and second-degree cruelty to children for allegedly leaving his 22-month-old son Cooper in a hot car for hours while he was at work.

Harris' attorney, Maddox Kilgore, says Cooper's mom is asking police for pictures of her baby to be used at his funeral on Saturday at the University Church of Christ in Tuscaloosa.

Cobb County Police say they aren't allowing that because the laptop is being used as evidence in the on-going criminal investigation into Ross Harris.

Kilgore said in a statement:

"I even offered to deliver a thumb drive directly to detectives to copy the photos. Cooper's mom is obviously hurt and confused that such a simple request for a tiny bit of compassion would be flatly rejected by the Cobb County Police Department."

Under Cobb County PD policy, Justin Ross Harris will not be able to attend his son's funeral since he is still in jail on no bond.
