MILFORD, CT (WFSB) -

A Shelton man accused of gunning down his wife while in the midst of a divorce faced a judge on Thursday.

Thomas Infante, 52, was back in court for the murder of his wife of 27 years, 52-year-old Lisa Infante.

During the proceedings in Milford, the judge sealed the arrest warrant indefinitely.

Thomas Infante waived his right to a probable cause hearing and is due back on Oct. 27. He did not enter a plea.

Police said Thomas Infante shot Lisa Infante on Sept. 27 after an argument. He then fled.

However, police said he eventually turned himself in after driving to the Shelton Police Department.

During a previous court appearance on Sept. 29, the judge set Thomas Infante's bond at $1.5 million and signed a protection order for two of the couple's four children. It was in response to concerns that two of them were home when the murder happened.

Police said the children lived there with their parents.

A GoFundMe page has been set up to help the children. A link to it can be found here.
