PONTIAC, Mich. -
The prosecutor's concern is that statements made by the family could taint potential jurors. The battle between family members and Cooper made headlines last week when family members started a wave of media interviews in which they blasted Cooper for refusing to negotiate a plea deal in the Trucker Cipriano and Mitchell Young case.
The prosecutor says she cannot let Tucker Cipriano and Young get off easy. In an interview from Friday, the family said a trial would be emotionally exhausting and they will continue to fight.
"She may think she has the last word on a plea, but this fight is not over," said Greg Cipriano, Tucker's uncle.
While the Ciprianos are ordered to stay quiet for now, Tucker's uncle believes the public will determine who was right once this is over.
Cipriano family supporters have been blowing up various blogs. Some are calling for a recall effort of Cooper once the trial is done.
However, Cooper herself has many supporters who believe a deal should not be offered to someone accused of beating his own family members with a baseball bat.
Jury selection will continue Wednesday. Tucker Cipriano and Young both face 1st degree murder charges.
