Son charged in father’s attack
Police say 19-year-old Tucker Cipriano broke into his parents' Farmington Hills home early Monday morning along with 20-year-old friend Mitchell Young. They planned to rob the place.
When Bob Cipriano found his eldest son at the home, a fight ensued. The 52-year-old father was beaten to death. His wife Rose and 17-year-old son Sal were severely beaten, too.
Young was arrested inside the house when police arrived. Tucker Cipriano was arrested just hours later in nearby Keego Harbor.
