Detroit-Area Man Charged With Murder in Woman’s Porch Death
A Detroit-area man who claimed he accidentally shot and killed a 19-year-old woman he thought was breaking into his home was charged Friday with second-degree murder, after days of pressure from her relatives seeking an arrest.
Theodore Paul Wafer, 54, also was charged with manslaughter and possession of a firearm in the commission of a felony in the November 2 shooting of Renisha McBride, who authorities say was intoxicated and possibly disoriented following a car crash before Wafer shot her on his Dearborn Heights porch.
I’m actually surprised that the gun-nuts haven’t really tried to defame the victim in this case, since she was actually intoxicated. I guess even they can’t justify shooting though a locked door.
