Farmington Hills Murder
Jury selection is scheduled to get underway Monday morning in a shocking murder case out of Farmington Hills; the baseball bat killing of a husband and father, allegedly at the hands of his own son.
A judge has shot down an attempt by Tucker Cipriano to have his confession thrown out of court.
Prosecutors told the judge that a forensic exam found Tucker Cipriano competent to stand trial.
Nineteen-year-old Tucker Cipriano and accomplice Mitchell Young appeared separately in Oakland County Court Tuesday on murder charges.
“This young man was, at least the information I have, he was hallucinating and he was having some issues in respect to having a clear mind and a clear head. Some of the things that occurred, he might not even remember,” Cipriano’s attorney said.
“Rose was serenaded with some guitar/harmonica music from her big brother Pat today. She was smiling and even tapping her foot a bit. Salvatore has a baseball in each hand,” family member Ariel Trahan wrote on the page.
In the statement released Friday afternoon, the Cipriano family said, “The family is grateful for the abundance of love, support, and prayers from their community.”
A prayer service for the Cipriano family drew over a hundred adults and children Monday night.
