Parents are supposed to be the people who protect their children.

As we've seen all too often, however, they can also be the ones who hurt them. In the case of Tony Moreno's seven-month-old son, Aaden, his parent was also his murderer. It's an unimaginably sad story that the boy's mother and family are still dealing with every day.

Moreno threw Aaden off the 90-foot-high Arrigoni Bridge in Connecticut. The child died from the fall and was found in the Connecticut River by a kayaker two days later.

Immediately after throwing the child, Moreno texted the boy's mother, Adrianne Oyola, with whom he had a strained relationship. Moreno told her, "He's dead. Soon I will be, too."

The chilling message came right before Moreno also jumped off the bridge. He survived the fall, spending several days in the hospital before being arrested for his child's murder.

Moreno argued in court that he didn't mean to drop the child, but the text messages and other evidence resulted in his conviction. He now faces up to 70 years in prison.

This poor, sweet angel. I'm so glad that justice is being served. Share if you think this man should receive the maximum sentence for his crimes.
