Jury deliberations to resume tomorrow in baby bridge toss case

EDISON - Jury deliberations began this morning in the murder trial of a New Jersey man accused of throwing his 3-month-old daughter off the Driscoll Bridge.

The judge gave the jurors instructions before beginning deliberations at around 10:30 a.m.

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.

Deliberations in the case will resume tomorrow.
