California hearing set for man charged with killing his 2-year-old daughter
LAKEHURST, New Jersey (AP) ' A U.S. man charged with killing his daughter by leaving her in a creek, still strapped into her car seat, is due to appear in a California courtroom Thursday morning.
Arthur Morgan III is charged with murdering 2-year-old Tierra Morgan-Glover last week. He was arrested Wednesday after a cross-country flight to escape prosecution.
New Jersey authorities are seeking to have him extradited to stand trial in his daughter's death.
Child welfare authorities investigated disputes between the couple over the past year, but in each instance did not determine that abuse or neglect was taking place.
