FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. - A 17-year-old Farmington Hills boy remains in critical condition since he was beaten April 16 at his home.
Sal Cipriano is at Botsford Hospital where he is responding to commands and pain. He is undergoing physical and occupational therapy.
He was one of three people beaten at the home in April. His father, Bob Cipriano, was killed. His mother, Rose Cipriano, was in critical condition but was moved to a private rehabilitation center which specializes in closed head injuries.
The family's eldest son, 19-year-old Tucker Cipriano, faces murder charges for the attack on his family members. His 20-year-old friend, Mitchell Young, faces the same charges after police said the men broke into the Cipriano home and beat the family members with baseball bats.
Tucker's young sister and brother, Sal's twin, were also at the home during the attack. Police said the boy called 911 from a closet and his sister allowed police into the home where they reported finding a gruesome murder scene.
