Father accused in 2-year-old's murder arrested
NEW YORK (WABC) -- Police captured the New Jersey man accused of killing his 2-year-old daughter.
27-year-old Arthur Morgan III was captured in San Diego by the San Diego Fugitive Task Force.
They had staked out the home of one of his aquaintances there and arrested him when he walked outside.
It happened around 7:30 p.m. Eastern time.
2-year-old Tierra Morgan-Glover never returned home from a court-approved visit with her father on Nov. 21.
She was found the next day in her car seat, which was partially submerged in a creek in a park in Wall Township, about 20 miles north of her Lakehurst home.
Her cause of death was listed as homicidal violence. It's alleged that he threw her off a bridge overpass and she landed in the creek still strapped in her car seat.
The FBI and the U.S. Marshals Service were among several agencies involved in the search for Tierra's father.
Morgan was even added this weekend as a featured fugitive on the "America's Most Wanted" website.
Morgan was charged in a state court with murder and in federal court with unlawful flight to avoid prosecution.
He was taken to the San Diego County jail, where he will remain pending extradition proceedings.
