TRENTON, N.J. - New Jersey prosecutors say DNA testing has confirmed that a body found on a riverbank last month is that of a missing infant.
Zara Malani-Lin Abdur-Raheem had been missing since Feb. 16.
Prosecutors believe her father, Shamsid-Din Abdur-Raheem, took the 3-month-old from her grandmother's apartment in East Orange and threw her from a highway bridge.
The 21-year-old Galloway Township resident has pleaded not guilty to murder and other charges. He's being held on $2.7 million bail.
The body was found on the bank of the Raritan River on April 24. Her clothing matched descriptions given to police when she disappeared.
