MIDDLETOWN (AP) — A 21-year-old Middletown man accused of throwing his infant son off the Arrigoni Bridge and into the Connecticut River faces a judge to answer a murder charge.

Tony Moreno is scheduled to appear in Middlesex Superior Court Tuesday, charged in the death of 7-month-old Aaden Moreno.

Moreno has been held in a state Department of Correction medical unit under suicide watch since jumping off the Arrigoni Bridge in Middletown on July 5, shortly after the baby was thrown into the water.

The child's body was later found two days later in East Haddam, south of where his father jumped.

Police say Tony Moreno has admitted throwing his son off the bridge.

The boy's 19-year-old mother, Adrianne Oyola, was denied a restraining order last month amid a bitter custody dispute.
