DETROIT – A suburban Detroit homeowner who fatally shot an unarmed woman on his porch was found guilty of second-degree murder and manslaughter Thursday afternoon.
The jury began deliberating shortly before noon Wednesday.
Theodore Wafer, 55, said he shot 19-year-old Renisha McBride in self-defensewhen she showed up drunk on his porch before dawn on Nov. 2. Several hours earlier, McBride had crashed her car into a parked car on a Detroit street about a half-mile from Wafer’s house in Dearborn Heights.
Wafer could face up to life in prison, but it is likely his actual sentence will be much shorter.
