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.”

McBride was killed on Nov. 2 in Dearborn Heights, Mich., when she went to 54-year-old Theodore Paul Wafer’s porch seeking help after a car crash, according to authorities.

Wafer was arraigned on three charges — the most serious of which was murder in the second degree — on Friday afternoon, hours after the Wayne County prosecutor said in a press conference that he “did not act in lawful self-defense” and that he would be turning himself in to face justice.
