The deranged dad charged with tossing his 7-month-old son into the East River and suspected of killing him has been indicted on body-dumping charges.

James Currie, 37, a transit worker, did not appear in court Friday when his case was called briefly in Manhattan Criminal Court.

Currie’s attorney, Norman Williams, said the charges have not been upgraded since his arrest.

Currie was busted for concealment of a human corpse in August, days after the grisly act.

Police suspect him of killing the infant, Mason.

Currie fled the country and was arrested in Thailand before he was hauled into Manhattan Criminal Court to face charges.

Authorities believe the MTA station cleaner killed the baby boy in his apartment then left with the corpse in a backpack before dropping it in the river.

He told the child’s mother in an ominous text that she would “never see Mason again,” prosecutors previously said.

His lawyer said there is no murder case.

“They don’t have the evidence they need to present to the grand jury,” Williams said.

Prosecutors could still pursue more serious charges in the future by presenting new charges to a grand jury.

Currie is being held without bail. He’s due back in court Oct. 11.
