The parents of an unarmed woman who was shot to death on a suburban Detroit porch spoke publicly for the first time Friday since the teen’s death 13 days ago, thanking the county prosecutor for filing charges against a homeowner in the case.
“I hope he spends the rest of his life in jail,” Walter Simmons, father of 19-year-old Renisha McBride, said, referring to the man charged as the “monster that killed my daughter.”
