SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — A South Dakota judge has increased bond from $750,000 to $1 million for the man accused of killing the 2-year-old son of Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson, citing the serious nature of the charges.

KELO-TV and KDLT-TV report that 27-year-old Joseph Patterson made his first court appearance Tuesday since being indicted on murder manslaughter charges in the death of Tyrese Ruffin. Patterson made the appearance via video conference from jail.

Patterson is the boyfriend of the boy’s mother. Authorities allege he assaulted Tyrese on Oct. 9 while the two were alone in a Sioux Falls apartment. He’s to be arraigned Monday. His attorney says Patterson is not guilty.

The Argus Leader reports that on Tuesday night, about 100 people turned out at a Sioux Falls church to mourn Tyrese.
