The Sioux Falls man accused of killing the 2-year old son of Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson is out of jail.

27-year-old Joseph Patterson was released from jail, Tuesday morning, after his family posted $750,000 bond.

Patterson is charged with second-degree murder and first-degree manslaughter in the October 11th death of Tyrese Ruffin, who is the son of Patterson's girlfriend.

Authorities say Patterson assaulted the boy at an apartment in southern Sioux Falls.
