MIDDLETOWN, Conn. -- (WTIC) -- Tony Moreno is facing 70 years in prison after being sentenced Wednesday in Middletown Superior Court.
Moreno, 23, was found guilty of murdering his infant son in February. Judge Elpedio Vitale sentenced him to 60 years for murder, as well as 10 years for risk of injury to a minor. He will serve the sentences consecutively.
Police said Moreno threw his 7-month-old son, Aaden, off the Arrigoni Bridge in Middletown in July 2015. He then jumped off himself, but survived.
Moreno’s relationship with the boy’s mother Adrianne Oyola had become strained in the months leading up to Aaden’s killing. She refused his marriage proposal, and a custody dispute was settled just days before the bridge incident.
