Shamsidden Abdur-Raheem had his head down and showed no visible reaction as the verdict was read in state superior court in New Brunswick on Friday.
Shamsidden Abdur-Raheem is charged with murder, attempted murder, kidnapping, aggravated assault and child endangerment.
Investigators are still trying to figure out how the best friends — 11-year-old Devine Nicholas and 10-year-old Francisco Perera — ended up being pulled out of the waters of the Raritan in New Brunswick.
According to EPA spokesperson Bonnie Bellow, about 200 million gallons of water flooded the property and electricity was “totally knocked out” by the storms.
Gov. Dan Malloy says he is pressing the federal government to help Connecticut assess damage caused by Tropical Storm Irene.
Floodwaters rose all across New Jersey, closing roads from side streets to major highways as Irene, the first hurricane to make landfall in the state in more than a century, weakened and moved on, leaving more than 600,000 homes and businesses without power.
Thanks to a pollution settlement from a lawsuit, the state now has money to rip out three dams in the Raritan River in Somerset County.
“Rescuing a River: The Raritan” will be shown Tuesday night at the Forum Theatre in Metuchen before airing Wednesday on NJN.
Shamsid-Din Abdur-Raheem entered his plea Tuesday in a New Brunswick courtroom. He is charged with murder and five other counts related to the infant’s abduction and death.
A New Jersey father was indicted Monday on kidnapping and murder charges for allegedly throwing his infant daughter off a bridge and into the Raritan River in February.
