Farmington Hills resident Christine Frederick, who was arrested on charges of manufacturing marijuana and second or subsequent violation for possession of a controlled substance, is scheduled to go to trial this spring.

According to Oakland County's Court Explorer website, Frederick's trial will begin on April 22.  

Frederick, 47, gained media attention after telling reporters that Tucker Cipriano, arrested April 16, 2012 following an attack on his family, lived with her in the fall of 2011, after she underwent brain surgery. Frederick said that Cipriano's adoption and alleged drug use were possible triggers for the attack. 

Farmington Hills Police Chief Chuck Nebus said Frederick's arrest is related to an ongoing drug investigation and not to the Cipriano case. After a hearing in May, 2012, Frederick's attorney Steven Schwartz said his client had a medical marijuana card and caregiver certification. 

Frederick was released on $1,000 bond; her bond was modified in October to include a requirement for random drug testing and that she abstain from using any controlled substance, including marijuana.
