Jurors are expected to start deliberating the case of a New Jersey man accused of killing his 2-year-old daughter by tossing her into a creek, still strapped into her car seat.

Wednesday’s deliberations come after the defense rested on Tuesday without calling any witnesses.

Prosecutors in Monmouth County say Arthur┬áMorgan III killed Tierra Morgan-Glover in a jealous rage in 2011 after the child’s mother broke off their engagement.

Defense lawyer Jeffrey Coghlan has argued Morgan dreamed of reuniting the family but that desire turned into an obsession when Morgan was not thinking clearly.

Morgan could face life in prison if convicted of “knowing and purposeful” murder. But if convicted of a lesser form of homicide, like manslaughter, he could be freed in as little as five years.
