Theodore Wafer is scheduled to appear in court this morning, 46 days after he fatally shot 19-year-old Renisha McBride.

Wafer’s court appearance will determine whether there is enough evidence to bring the case to trial. The 54-year-old faces charges of second-degree murder and manslaughter in the Nov. 2 death of McBride.

The Detroit teen was seeking help following a car accident when she was shot in the face on Wafer’s front porch. Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy believes Wafer used his 12-gauge shotgun and shot McBride through a screen door.

In the 911 tape from that night, Wafer clearly states that he shot someone on his front who was banging on his door.
