Most killers appear either stoic or remorseful when a guilty verdict is handed down to them in a courtroom. Arthur Morgan III, the man found guilty of murdering his two-year-old daughter by mercilessly throwing her off a bridge to spite his baby mama, proved he was a psychopath by smiling and winking for cameras as he made his exit to the big house.
Reports the NYDailyNews:
A man who tossed his 2-year-old daughter into a creek while she was still strapped into her car seat was convicted Thursday of her murder and smirked as he was led out of court in handcuffs to spend what will probably be the rest of his life behind bars.
Jurors found Arthur Morgan III guilty of killing Tierra Morgan-Glover, whose body was pulled from a creek in a park near the Jersey shore in November 2011. They also found him guilty of child endangerment and interference with custody.
Prosecutors had said he killed Tierra to get back at her mother for breaking off their engagement. They said he weighed down her pink car seat with a tire jack to ensure it would sink. Her body was pulled from a creek in Wall Township, about 20 miles from her Lakehurst home, with one tiny black and purple sneaker sticking out of the water.
The girl’s relatives gasped when Morgan smirked broadly as he was led out of the courtroom after his conviction, his hands and feet shackled. Immediately after leaving the courtroom, several of them collapsed into sobs, with one woman wailing, “Oh, God!”
Morgan hasn’t been sentenced yet but he is expected to receive a life sentence without the possibility of parole, seeing that the murder was premeditiated. The prosecutor, Marc LeMieuxm said “if the death penalty was a possibility, I would have asked for the case to be certified for death.”
View the photos of the disgusting smirk Morgan flashed the cameras as well as his baby’s final resting place. Obviously he is naive of the rep child killers carry in prison.
