(Shelton, Conn./CBS Connecticut) – Three people are facing charges in connection with an early Thanksgiving morning incident in Shelton in which a man was thrown from a city bridge.
Detectives say it started with an argument between 25-year-old Gregory Rottjer and his 22-year-old girlfriend Jennifer Hannum.
When the victim and his brother attempted to come to Hannum’s aid, detective Richard Bango says Rottjer and another cohort, 27-year-old Matthew Durso of Ansonia threw the victim off the Derby-Shelton bridge into the icy Housatonic River waters 45-feet below.
Bango says Rottjer, Hannum, and Durso were arrested this morning.
Rottjer faces attempted murder and other charges and is being held on $250,000 bond
Durso and Hannum are facing less serious charges.
