Dad Gets Life for Tossing Daughter Into Creek

An Eatontown man who tossed his 2-year-old daughter into a creek while she was strapped into her car seat apologized Wednesday — but not for murdering the child.

Just before he was sentenced to spend the rest of his life in prison, Arthur Morgan III apologized to the child’s mother for the deterioration of their friendship.

Given the chance to explain his actions to Judge Anthony Mellaci Jr., Morgan complained that the media published photos that made him look inappropriately angry or happy. He also says he would not have worn designer clothing to court if he knew he would be criticized for it.

Morgan was convicted of killing Tierra Morgan-Glover by throwing her into a creek, strapped into a car seat and weighed down by a tire jack.
