TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Pima County authorities say criminal proceedings against a 20-year-old Tucson-area man in his father’s death are being dropped pending further investigation.

Jared Patrick had been arrested and jailed on suspicion of second-degree murder in the death of 47-year-old Justin Patrick on Jan. 22.

However, the Sheriff’s Office now says that criminal case is being dismissed as investigators wait for further results from the autopsy conducted by the medical examiner.

The Sheriff’s Office had said the father wasn’t breathing and his son was injured when deputies responded to a domestic violence report.

Family members had found the men fighting and separated them.
