Jury ends third day of deliberations in baby's bridge death case

Jury deliberations will pick back up again tomorrow morning in the murder trial of a man accused of throwing his infant daughter off the Driscoll

NEW BRUNSWICK - Jury deliberations will pick back up again tomorrow morning in the murder trial of a man accused of throwing his infant daughter off the Driscoll Bridge.

Shamsidden Abdur-Raheem is charged in the death of 3-month-old Zara Malani-Lin Abdur-Raheem.

Before resuming deliberations today, the jury asked to once again view the surveillance video shown during the trial. They also asked for an explanation of charges, including the difference between murder and manslaughter

Prosecutors say Abdur-Raheem abducted his daughter from her maternal grandmother's East Orange apartment in February 2010, then fled with the baby and later threw or dropped her into the Raritan River. The girl's mother had sole custody and had left the baby in her mother's care while she sought a restraining order against Abdur-Raheem.

The baby's body was found on the shore of the Raritan River two months later.
