Dad Charged With Strapping Daughter in Car Seat & Fatally Tossing Her Into a Creek

Posted by Ericka Sóuter on June 18, 2012 at 4:15 PM

creekA father is accused of tossing his 2-year-old daughter into a creek while still strapped in her car seat.

Prosecutors say back in November Arthur Morgan-Glover asked the girl's mother if he could take her to a movie. When he didn't return a few hours later, she called police, who found little Tierra's body in a park creek

According to police reports, the toddler was still alive and snug in her car seat when he threw her from a New Jersey overpass into the freezing water. To make sure it sank, he weighed the seat down with a car jack.

Morgan is charged with murder in addition to interference with custody and child endangerment. If convicted, he could get life in prison without the possibility of parole -- the harshest penalty in New Jersey. 

But I have to ask, is that really harsh enough for a crime so heinous and so cruel. It is horrifying to think of this toddler's final, terror filled moments. As often as crimes against children fill the news, I will never get used to stories like these. It is a heartbreaking shame.

What do you think of this case?

 That's heart breaking...

This is why I think the courts need to listen up when a parents says the other one is abusive and or can be danger or harm to the children. There needs to me someway to overcome this and find a better solution when parents split, i realize that a parent could lie and say the other is a danger, but it seems this is happening more and more and too many babies/kids are falling victim to this
