SIOUX FALLS, SD -
A Sioux Falls man has been found not guilty of two charges in a 2008 child abuse case.
Utkarsh Vijayvergiya had been charged with aggravated assualt and child abuse. A five-day trial in Minnehaha County wrapped up Friday.
Prosecutors argued the boy's injuries were caused by abuse. But a pathologist testifying for the defense said the boy could have stopped breathing from a virus.
This article has been revised to reflect the following correction:
In a July 30 story and the accompanying headline about a Minnehaha County jury finding Utkarsh Vijayvergiya not guilty of assault and child abuse, The Associated Press reported erroneously that Vijayvergiya's son died after being hospitalized in 2008. The child did not die.
