Shamsidden Abdur-Raheem is charged with murder and kidnapping in the death of his daughter, Zara Malani-Lin Abdur-Raheem.
Prosecutors claim Abdur-Raheem abducted Zara Malani-Lin Abdur-Raheem from her maternal grandmother's East Orange apartment in February 2010. The child's mother had sole custody and had left the infant in her mother's care while she sought a restraining order against Abdur-Raheem.
