Trial to begin in NJ baby bridge death

Posted: Updated:

NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. (AP) — Opening statements are scheduled Wednesday at the trial of a New Jersey man accused of throwing his 3-month-old daughter off a bridge.

Prosecutors say Shamsid-Din Abdur-Raheem abducted Zara Malani-lin Abdur-Raheem from her grandmother's East Orange apartment in 2010 while the baby's mother was in court seeking a restraining order.

Authorities say he eventually parked on the Driscoll Bridge on the Garden State Parkway and threw or dropped the girl into the Raritan River.

The child's body was discovered about two months later.

Besides the murder count, the 24-year-old former Galloway Township resident also faces charges of attempted murder, kidnapping, aggravated assault and child endangerment.
