MIDDLETOWN, Conn. (AP) — A Connecticut man charged with killing his 7-month-old son by throwing him off a bridge has testified that he dropped the boy and did not intend to harm him.
Police say Moreno threw Aaden off the 90-foot-high Arrigoni Bridge between Middletown and Portland and then jumped himself, but survived.
The boy’s mother, Adrianne Oyola, testified Wednesday that her relationship with Moreno took a turn when she refused his marriage proposal in June 2015.
Documents show Moreno and Oyola were going through a custody dispute at the time. A judge denied a permanent restraining order against him days before the boy’s death.
