The fate of Theodore Wafer, a suburban Detroit man who shot an unarmed teenager on his porch, is now in the hands of the jury.

Wafer, 55, is charged with second degree murder and manslaughter for shooting and killing Renisha McBride, 19, last November when the teenager showed up inebriated on his porch at 4:40 a.m. Wafer said he could only make out a figure around his house, said the person pounded on his door and made him fear for his life.

Throughout the nine days of the trial, the prosecution and the defense have presented two dramatically different versions of what happened the night McBride died.

Wayne County Prosecutor Pat Muscat said today in summation that McBride, who had been drinking and crashed her car in the hours before she died, “just wanted to go home, yet she ended up with bullets in her head.”
