Judge limits suspect in death of Peterson’s son

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — A judge has ordered that a man charged in the killing of the 2-year-old son of Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson in South Dakota last fall must have no unsupervised contact with children and no contact with the victim’s family.

The judge imposed additional bond conditions Wednesday for 28-year-old Joseph Patterson. He was released on a $2 million bond in September and faces charges of second-degree murder, manslaughter and aggravated assault in the October 2013 death of Tyrese Ruffin. His trial has been indefinitely delayed from its planned October start date.

The judge declined a Lincoln County state’s attorney’s request to subject Patterson to GPS monitoring. Patterson signed an extradition hearing waiver to ensure he would be returned to South Dakota if he were captured elsewhere.
