(FREEHOLD) Jury selection began Tuesday morning in the murder trial of Arthur E. Morgan, III, in the courtroom of Monmouth County Superior Court Judge Anthony J. Mellaci, Jr., J.S.C., announced Acting Monmouth County Prosecutor Christopher J. Gramiccioni.
Morgan, 29, with a last known address in Eatontown, is facing charges stemming from the death of his 2-year-old daughter, after the young girl’s body was discovered in November 2011, under a Schoolhouse Road bridge over the Shark River by a group of teenagers. Morgan is charged with first degree Murder, second degree Endangering the Welfare of a Child and third-degree Interference with Custody.
The discovery of the toddler’s fully-clothed body, strapped into a car seat, submerged in the stream below an overpass located on Schoolhouse Road in the Shark River Park section of Wall on Nov. 22, 2011, sparked a joint investigation by the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office and other law enforcement agencies. The child was later identified as Tierra Morgan-Glover, 2, of Lakehurst, who was reported missing the previous night. Read More
