Jury picked in trial of man charged in dad's death

PONTIAC (AP) -- A jury has been selected in the trial of a young Detroit-area man charged with murder in the death of his father who was attacked with a baseball bat.

Tucker Cipriano's jury in Oakland County Circuit Court has six men and eight women, including two alternates. The panel was chosen Wednesday after two days of interviews.

Robert Cipriano was killed inside his Farmington Hills home in April 2012. His wife, Rose, and another son, Sal, were also attacked. Sal Cipriano still is in a hospital.

Judge Shalina Kumar warned jurors that it's going "to be a difficult trial." Tucker Cipriano's co-defendant, Mitchell Young, will have his own jury. The selection process began Thursday.
