Joseph Patterson, the man that allegedly killed the son of Vikings Running Back Adrian Peterson has formally been charged with 2nd degree murder.

The man who allegedly beat Adrian Peterson’s 2-year-old son to death was just charged with second degree murder … TMZ has learned.

If convicted the 2nd degree murder charge carries a mandatory life sentence, but in my opinion, for the killer of an infant no punishment is harsh enough.
