The 2-year-old son of football star Adrian Peterson died Friday after another man allegedly beat the child, authorities say.
Joseph Robert Patterson, 27, of Sioux Falls, S.D., who has dated the child's mother, remained jailed after his arrest Thursday on $750,000 bail on charges of aggravated assault and aggravated battery on an infant.
Police spokesman Sam Clemens says Patterson called 911 about 5:45 p.m. Wednesday to report that a 2-year-old was choking in Patterson's apartment, according to CNN.

Jake Gyllenhaal is enjoying a romantic summer in the city, taking a weekend bike ride with a new friend, Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Alyssa Miller.
The affectionate duo was spotted at the Cold Process Coffee and Tea pop-up stand at New York's Pier 57 last Sunday around 3 p.m. As they ordered refreshments, the couple couldn't resist sneaking in a few sweet smacks on the lips.
An onlooker told PEOPLE that Gyllenhaal, 32, who was a presenter two weeks ago at the Tony Awards ceremony in New York, and brunette Miller, 23 , who made her SI debut in 2011, appeared to be more than just friends as they were sweetly affectionate with each other.

Yes, Jason Collins feels a certain amount of pride. But he also feels enormous relief.
"I know that I, right now, am the happiest I've ever been in my life," the NBA player, who this week became the first openly gay athlete in a major U.S. team sport, tells ABC News.
"A huge weight has been lifted. I've already been out to my family and my friends, but just to, you know, sort of rip the Band-Aid off and come out on my own terms … I hope that every player makes a decision that leads to their own happiness."

NBA center Jason Collins set an historical precedent Monday, coming out as gay in Sports Illustrated.
"I'm a 34-year-old NBA center. I'm black. And I'm gay," Collins, states in the cover story of the latest SI (which, like PEOPLE, is published by Time Inc.). "I didn't set out to be the first openly gay athlete playing in a major American team sport. But since I am, I'm happy to start the conversation."
Insisting it was not his desire to be "the kid in the classroom raising his hand and saying, 'I'm different,' " Collins, who's a free agent and has played for six pro teams and appeared in two NBA Finals, goes on to say: "If I had my way, someone else would have already done this. Nobody has, which is why I'm raising my hand."

Skin is in when it comes to being a Sports Illustrated model – and who better to show off a sexy wardrobe than the ladies themselves?

"Her style is impeccable, flawless and I can't wait to see what's in her closet," Teigen says before introducing Miller, 22.

Kate Upton's Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover is very hot – but during her photo shoot in Antarctica, all the model could think about was the freezing cold.
"It was definitely the hardest shoot I've ever done," Upton, 20, tells PEOPLE. "The best as well – Antarctica is one of the most beautiful place I've ever been to. But I'm from Florida, so it was pretty painful."
The pain paid off, however: the perfect shot earned Upton her second consecutive SI cover, a distinction not seen since Tyra Banks covered back-to-back issues in 1996 and 1997.

Brrr ... that's hot!
For the second year in a row, model Kate Upton appears on the cover of Sports Illustrated's Swimsuit Issue, which goes on sale Tuesday.
The magazine shared the news – and that steamy photo – via Twitter on Friday night, writing, "POLAR BARE: @KateUpton in Antarctica is your 2013 SI Swimsuit Cover Model!"
And unlike last year, this time around Upton, 20, is slightly more covered up – OK, not really – in her Antarctica-themed shoot. The cover finds the model posing in a white Canada Goose Chilliwack Bomber jacket, unzipped, with a fur hood and bikini bottom on a boat.
