Baby Murder Suspect Indicted

The man suspected of leaving his two-year-old daughter to drown in a Wall Township stream last November appears headed for trial, and if convicted faces life behind bars without parole.

Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office

Arthur Morgan III, whose last known address was in Eatontown, was indicted this morning in Monmouth County Superior Court in Freehold.

The 27-year-old is charged with first-degree murder, second-degree endangerment of a child, and third-degree custody interference.

The lifeless body of Tierra Morgan-Glover was found, fully clothed and still strapped in her car seat, submerged in a stream in Shark River Park last November 22.

Police began searching for the toddler late on November 21 after getting a call from her mother in Lakehurst. Authorities say she consented to letting Morgan take the girl out for a few hours.

Investigators say that Morgan had hopped a train from Asbury Park to Newark while the search was on. He was found a week later in San Diego, California, and extradited back to New Jersey.

Morgan remains in the Monmouth County Correctional Facility on $10,000,000 bail. The murder charge carries a minimum of 30 years without parole on conviction. But prosecutors say that the toddler’s age – under 14 – was determined by the grand jury to be an aggravating factor.
