Cipriano friend arrested in unrelated case

FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. (WXYZ) - A woman who supported murder suspect Tucker Cipriano is under arrest in an unrelated drug case.

Four people, including two men and two women were arrested at the woman's Farmington Hills home Friday night.

It's believed Cipriano lived in the home as recently as last fall.

Police tell 7 Action News the case is not connected to the murder of Bob Cipriano and the attack on his wife and son.

The arrests happened at the home of Christine Frederick, who was in the courtroom when Tucker Cipriano was charged in the attacks on his family.

According to attorney Steve Schwartz, the arrest stems from a drug raid that happened at Frederick's Farmington Hills home about three months ago.

"I believe it's going to be possession with intent to deliver marijuana," said Schwartz.

Frederick recently spoke out in defense of Cipriano, telling 7 Action News that he'd always had problems dealing with the fact that he was adopted.

"She wants to help young people, she grew up in foster homes herself and has a heart the size of a watermelon," said Schwartz.

Tucker Cipriano and Mitchell Young have been charged with murder in the death of Tucker's father, Bob Cipriano.
