As expected, a grand jury has indicted Joseph Patterson on second-degree murder and manslaughter charges in connection with the death of Adrian Peterson's two-year-old son, Tyrese Robert Doohen.

Ty was in Patterson's care before he was rushed to a Sioux Falls hospital on the evening of October 9. As we reported, Ty's friends and family initially thought the boy had choked on candy, but authorities later concluded the injuries that would ultimately claim his life were a result of child abuse.

A source told us Ty was violently shaken and suffered traumatic brain injuries. He died October 11.

This guy is in for a rough time in prison.  I doubt he'll survive his sentence.

He won't last long in prison. Give him a year - I'm sure he won't last three months.

I doubt she did, legally she did not do anything wrong - she was having him babysit. She will be living with that guilt of that choice for the rest of her life.

Not defending the guy or anything, but I'm curious.  From what can you tell he doesn't give a crap?
