NJ dad indicted in death of baby thrown off bridge‎

NEWARK, N.J. ó A New Jersey father was indicted Monday on kidnapping and murder charges for allegedly throwing his infant daughter off a bridge and into a river in February.

Shamsid-Din Abdur-Raheem faces six counts related to the abduction and death of his 3-month-old daughter, Zara Malani-Lin Abdur-Raheem, whose body was found near the Raritan River in April.

The 22-year-old Galloway Township man also faces attempted murder charges for allegedly assaulting the baby's maternal grandmother, who was caring for the infant while the child's mother was obtaining a restraining order against Abdur-Raheem.

Man accused in river death of infant seeks reduced bail

The attorney for a man accused of throwing his 3-month-old daughter off a bridge while the child's mother was at court seeking a restraining order said Monday that he was hoping to get his client's bail reduced and may opt for an insanity defense.

In a brief proceeding in Superior Court on Monday, Richard Klein noted that Shamsiddin Abdur-Raheem has no indictable offenses on his record and was employed and in school when his daughter died in February 2010.

Father who threw his baby daughter over a bridge shows no emotion as he is convicted of murder

A man who kidnapped his infant daughter from her grandmotherís home and tossed her over a bridge into the icy river below showed no emotion as he was convicted of her murder today.

Shamsidden Abdur-Raheem, 24, from New Jersey, bowed his head and showed little reaction as guilty verdicts for murder, kidnapping and related charges were read in state superior court in New Brunswick.

The childís mother, Venetta Benjamin, who testified during the trial, let out a quick gasp of air, tears rolling down her cheeks as the verdict was read.
She later thanked all those 'who have worked tirelessly on this case and verdict, to ensure justice for my daughter', adding: 'God is good.'

New Jerseyís attorney general lauded the verdict, saying it was 'a chapter in a tragedy, but a chapter that needed to be written', in a case that prompted an overhaul of the stateís rules on issuing missing child alerts.

Abdur-Raheem admitted during the trial that he threw three-month-old Zara Malani-Lin Abdur-Raheem off a Garden State Parkway bridge into the Raritan River on February 16, 2010.

But he claimed he believed the child already was dead from injuries she suffered during a fight with the babyís grandmother.

The infantís body was found on the shore of the Raritan two months later by passers-by.

The jury acquitted Abdur-Raheem of attempted murder of the babyís maternal grandmother, Leno Benjamin.

The grandmother had been caring for the infant at her East Orange apartment while the childís mother was obtaining a restraining order against Abdur-Raheem.

Jurors convicted him on lesser charges related to Abdur-Raheem assaulting the grandmother while taking the child.

Abdur-Raheem testified that during a struggle with the childís grandmother, the baby fell and hit her head.

But a state forensic anthropologist testified the skull fractures found on the baby were made at or about the time of death and that they were caused by a significant fall and not one of four feet or less.

During his testimony, Abdur-Raheem said he placed the infant in a knapsack, and pushed her out the passenger side window and off the Driscoll Bridge, into the river more than 100 feet below.

'I tossed my daughter off the bridge,' he said. 'I donít know why.'

Family members said at the time of the babyís disappearance that the couple, who never married, had a bumpy relationship since they started dating as freshmen at The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey.

Abdur-Raheem, of Galloway Township, wore a suit, tie and glasses in court, and showed little reaction during the proceedings in front of State Superior Court Judge Bradley Ferencz. Abdur-Raheemís mother and father, both present in court for the verdict, declined to comment.

His attorney, Michael Priarone, did not comment following the verdict, and did not return a call seeking comment.

Deputy Attorney General Andrew Fried, who prosecuted the case, said he appreciated that jurors seemed to have taken their time because they were taking the case seriously.

The jury deliberated for four days and made several requests for clarification on legal points and to have testimony transcripts read to them.

'People came up to me and said: "Why isnít there a verdict?" Obviously this jury wanted to be very, very careful, and they took it very seriously, and obviously came out with the right verdict,' Fried said.

Abdur-Raheem faces a minimum of 40 years in prison on the murder and kidnapping charges and up to life in prison when heís sentenced November 7, Attorney General Jeffrey Chiesa said.
