FREEHOLD, N.J. (AP) -- A murder trial is set to start for a New Jersey man charged with tossing his 2-year-old daughter into a creek while she was still strapped in her car seat.

Arthur Morgan III of Eatontown is accused of weighing down the seat with a tire-changing jack so that it would sink. He's charged with killing his daughter, Tierra Morgan-Glover, in November 2011.

Her body was found in a creek inside a Jersey Shore park after he failed to return the girl to her mother following a trip to see a movie about dancing penguins.

An autopsy determined that the child was alive when she hit the water.

Morgan fled to California following the child's death, and was found there by a fugitive recovery task force.
