Joseph Patterson indicted for murder in connection with AP son's death
As expected, a grand jury has indicted Joseph Patterson on second-degree murder and manslaughter charges in connection with the death of Adrian Peterson's two-year-old son, Tyrese Robert Doohen.
Ty was in Patterson's care before he was rushed to a Sioux Falls hospital on the evening of October 9. As we reported, Ty's friends and family initially thought the boy had choked on candy, but authorities later concluded the injuries that would ultimately claim his life were a result of child abuse.
A source told us Ty was violently shaken and suffered traumatic brain injuries. He died October 11.
