On Wednesday the murder trial of Shamsid-Din Abdur-Raheem started. Abdur-Raheem is on trial for the murder of his 3-month-old daughter, Zara Malani-lin Abdur-Raheem, who he repeatedly admitted to throwing off a bridge on a New Jersey highway in February 2010.
Venetta Benjamin, the mother of the baby who had custody of the baby, left her with her mother, the baby’s grandmother. Even though Benjamin had sought a restraining order against Abdur-Raheem, he still came and took the baby.
According to prosecutors, in February 2010, Abdur-Raheem took the baby from her grandmothers apartment in East Orange, NJ. While he was snatching the baby, Abdur-Raheem reportedly assaulted the baby’s grandmother and even hit her with a van. He is reported to have driven to the Driscoll Bridge on the Garden State Parkway and tossed the baby into the Raritan River.
