NEW BRUNSWICK - Jurors have found a father guilty of murdering his baby daughter by tossing her off the Driscoll Bridge.
Shamsidden Abdur-Raheem was convicted today in New Brunswick in the death of 3-month-old Zara Malani-Lin Abdur-Raheem.
The jury also found the 24-year-old Galloway Township resident guilty of kidnapping the child, but not guilty of attempted murder of the baby's maternal grandmother.
Prosecutors say Abdur-Raheem abducted his daughter from her maternal grandmother's East Orange apartment in February 2010, fled with the baby, and dropped the child from the Driscoll Bridge.
Her body was found weeks later in the icy Raritan River.
The girl's mother had sole custody and had left the baby in her mother's care while seeking a restraining order against Abdur-Raheem.
