MIDDLETOWN - A Middletown man accused of throwing his 7-month-old son off of a bridge into the Connecticut River has made his first court appearance.

Middletown police say 22-year-old Tony Moreno, is facing murder charges after he threw the child off a bridge, and then jumped into the water.

It happened earlier in July.

Moreno's attorney asked the judge for more time to prepare for a probable cause hearing. 

The judge continued the case until September.
