Zara Malani-Lin Abdur-Raheem
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.
Shamsid-Din Abdur-Raheem abducted Zara Malani-lin Abdur-Raheem from her grandmother’s East Orange apartment in 2010 while the baby’s mother was in court seeking a restraining order, prosecutors said.
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.
