A candlelight vigil will be held Friday evening for the two-year-old boy who died after allegedly being hurt by his mother's boyfriend.
The boy was found unresponsive at a Sioux Falls apartment Wednesday evening. Sioux Falls police announced he had died Friday afternoon.
The boyfriend, 27-year-old Joseph Robert Patterson, is charged with Aggravated battery of an infant and Aggravated Assault but could face different charges now that the boy has passed away. His bond was set at $750,000 during a court appearance on Friday.
The event organizer is asking people to come together to show love and support for the family and friends of the little boy. You are asked to bring candles and prayers to Sertoma Park in Sioux Falls at 7:30 p.m.
