Police: Father admits to throwing infant son into the Connecticut River

Middletown police say the man charged with murdering his infant son admitted to tossing his child into the Connecticut River.



They say 22-year-old Tony Moreno has been recovering in the hospital since he was pulled from the water after police say he threw his son off a bridge Sunday and jumped in afterwards.



Court documents say Moreno told police he threw the child at a "free-throw distance" off the Bridge.



The body of the baby was found near a swing bridge in East Haddam Tuesday night.
