New Jersey prosecutors say they will move quickly to extradite a man suspected of killing his 2-year-old daughter by tossing her into a creek while she was still strapped in her car seat.
Twenty-seven-year-old Arthur Morgan III was captured late Tuesday afternoon at a home in San Diego, Calif. The arrest came one week after he allegedly killed Tierra Morgan-Glover during a court-approved visit and then fled the state.
Morgan had been the subject of a nationwide manhunt. He was being held early Wednesday in California, and it was not clear when an extradition hearing would be scheduled.
The girl's mother, Imani Benton, called police after Morgan failed to return the child. She learned of his arrest when she arrived at a friend's home Tuesday night and heard people cheering.
