Arthur Morgan III

May 29, 2014 by  

Arthur Morgan III, A homeless New Jersey dad complained that his designer wardrobe of Gucci suits and Prada accessories influenced a jury into finding him guilty last month of drowning his two-year-old girl in 2011.

Speaking before he was sentenced to life behind bars for tossing his daughter into a stream still strapped to her car seat, Arthur E. Morgan III said he wouldn’t have worn his expensive suits if he knew he would be criticized by the media for it.

He also said that the media insisted on publishing photographs of him that portrayed him in a bad light – including the moment last month when a suited Morgan , 29, winked to cameras after a jury ruled he murdered Tierra Morgan-Glover.

Morgan also apologized, but not for murdering the child. Instead, just before he was sentenced to spend the rest of his life in prison, Arthur Morgan III apologized to the child’s mother for the breakdown of their relationship.

‘I want to say I’m sorry for the deterioration of what I thought was a beautiful friendship between the two of us that blossomed into a daughter,’ Morgan told Imani Benton. ‘For anybody that was truly affected by this, I hope we can all heal from this situation, knowing Tierra is in a better place.’

He also said his courtroom wink following his conviction was to reassure his sister he was not upset at the verdict.

The girl’s mother, who wore a dress embroidered with Tierra’s name and photos attached to it, said she hopes Morgan suffers in prison.

Superior Court Judge Anthony J. Mellaci said that there were no mitigating circumstances in the case and that if New Jersey still had the death penalty, ‘you would be candidate No.1’.

‘This child was alive when she was placed in the water in pitch darkness, and had to suffer the unthinkable action of having water rush in and fill her lungs while strapped into that car seat,’ the judge said. ‘This child suffered before she died.’
