A homeowner will be charged with second-degree murder in the shooting of an unarmed woman on a suburban Detroit porch earlier this month.
Renisha McBride, 19, was killed on Nov. 2 in Dearborn Heights, Mich., when she went to a man’s porch seeking help after a car crash, according to police.
Wayne County prosecutor Kym Worthy announced three charges against the homeowner — 54-year-old Theodore Paul Wafer — on Friday, the most serious of which was murder in the second degree.
Wafer was not yet in custody and will be asked by prosecutors to turn himself in. He is expected to be arraigned at 2 p.m.
“These are the appropriate charges and he did not act in lawful self-defense,” Worthy said.
