More Serious Charges Possible In Death Of Adrian Peterson's Son
(Sioux Falls, SD) -- Prosecutors in Sioux Falls, South Dakota plan to ask a grand jury to consider more serious charges against the man accused of beating the two-year-old son of Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson. 27-year-old Joseph Patterson, the boyfriend of the child's mother, is charged with aggravated assault and battery, but young Tyrese Doohen died Friday after he was hospitalized with severe head injuries. Lincoln County State's Attorney Tom Wollman (WOLE'-man) says his office is still evaluating possible charges and won't say whether they'll ask for a murder indictment. Wollman says he expects a grand jury to be convened by next Monday and possibly as early as this Friday.
