NEW BRUNSWICK - The jury in the trial of a man accused of throwing his 3-month-old daughter off the Driscoll Bridge is set to begin deliberations tomorrow.

Closing arguments were made Friday morning. Shamsiddin Abdur-Raheem took the stand Thursday and admitted taking his daughter by force from the child's grandmother and fleeing with her in his car down the Garden State Parkway.

He testified that the child was already dead when he flung her into the Raritan River in February of 2010. Zara's remains were found two months later.
