Charges dropped against man accused of killing his father

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Charges against a Tucson man accused of killing his father in a fight have been dropped, according to the Pima County Sheriff's Department.

The Pima County Attorney's Office has dismissed the second degree murder charge for Jared Patrick, 20, pending further results from the autopsy conducted by the Pima County Office of the Medical Examiner, a news release said.

Patrick was arrested on Jan. 22 after family members found him fighting with his father, 47-year-old Justin Patrick, in the 16500 block of West Moore Road.

Responding deputies found the elder Patrick on the ground in front of the residence, not breathing.

Justin Patrick was transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead.
