Teen Accused of Attacking His Parents

A teen and his friend were accused of attacking his parents with a baseball bat in his Farmington Hills home last week Monday. The attack resulted in the death of his father and the beating of his mother and brother by baseball bat. Both teens were charged with first-degree premeditated murder and first-degree felony murder for the death of his father. The teens were charged with one count of armed robbery and two counts of assault with intent to commit murder for the beating of his mother and brother.
