ATLANTA (AP) — The lawyer for a Georgia woman whose husband is charged with murder in the death of their toddler son in a hot vehicle says his client passed a polygraph test.

Lawyer Lawrence Zimmerman said in a written statement Monday that Leanna Harris took the test July 16.

Zimmerman says Harris responded "no" to each of the following questions:

— Prior to June 18th, did you know that your husband would leave your son in that vehicle?

— Did you plan or arrange with your husband to leave your son in that vehicle?

— Did your husband tell you that he was going to leave your son in that vehicle?

Prosecutors charged Justin Ross Harris with murder in the boy's June 18 death.

Leanna Harris faces no charges in the case.
