Defense Seeks Records In Death Of Adrian Peterson’s Son

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — An attorney for the man charged with killing the 2-year-old son of Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson last fall says prosecutors have been too slow to provide relevant medical records.

Defense attorney Tim Rensch wants a judge to order prosecutors to speed up the release of medical information including CT scans and digital images of injuries suffered by Tyrese Ruffin.

Prosecutor Tom Wollman says any delays in the release of the medical information aren’t intentional.

Rensch says he needs the information to adequately defend 28-year-old Joseph Patterson, who faces an October trial on several charges including second-degree murder.

Patterson was the boyfriend of Tyrese’s mother. Peterson had just recently found out that Tyrese was his son when the boy died last October.
