Man Who Threw His Baby Off Bridge Sentenced To 70 Years
I only have one question...how does this guy not get life?!
I realize he will still probably die behind bars, but it's the principal.
This man threw his own infant son off of a bridge 90 feet high to his death....
Tony Moreno, 23, received the maximum sentence; he was convicted by a jury in Februaryof murder and risk of injury to a minor.
“The utter depravity of the crime, a father killing his infant son, speaks for itself,” Middletown Superior Court Judge Elpedio Vitale said.
Police said Moreno threw his son, Aedan, off the Arrigoni Bridge over the Connecticut River in July 2015, after a period of strained relations with the boy’s mother.The mother, Adrianne Oyola, had recently refused Moreno's marriage proposal. A custody dispute was settled just days before the boy's death.
Moreno claims he intended to commit suicide, and the boy slipped out of his hands by accident. He previously confessed to police that he deliberately threw the boy off the bridge.Police responded to the scene after Moreno's mother called 911 to report that her son had told her he planned to jump.Officers saw Moreno jump and found an empty baby stroller near the bridge.Aeden's body was found two days later, several miles downstream from where he had been thrown. -(NY Daily News)
