Suspect in daughter killing due in NJ court Monday

A man charged with killing his 2-year-old daughter and leaving her in a park creek, still strapped into her car seat, is due in a New Jersey courtroom Monday afternoon.

Arthur Morgan III was arrested Monday in San Diego and has agreed to return to his home state to stand trial.

The Monmouth County Prosecutor's Office says Morgan is being transferred back home, but would not say if he had arrived as of Friday night, citing security reasons.

Morgan is charged with the murder of Tierra Morgan-Glover, whose body was found Nov. 22 in a creek in Wall Township. He had picked the child up from her mother's house in Lakehurst, about 20 miles south of the park, but failed to return her.
