A 21-year-old man has been convicted of murder in a 2012 baseball bat attack on a suburban Detroit family.
An Oakland County Circuit Court jury on Friday found Mitchell Young guilty of first-degree murder, assault with intent to murder and other charges. He's expected to be sentenced July 25 to life in prison without the possibility of parole for the murder charge.
Earlier this month, 20-year-old Tucker Cipriano pleaded no contest to charges he killed his father and injured his mother and brother with a baseball bat in the attack. His sentencing is July 9.
The defense had argued that Tucker Cipriano was to blame.
Robert Cipriano was killed inside his Farmington Hills home in April 2012. His wife Rose and their son Sal were also attacked.
