The family of a Detroit woman shot and killed by a Dearborn Heights homeowner— has filed a civil lawsuit seeking damages in her death.
“If he gets sentenced under the murder guidelines, it’s a death sentence,” Theodore Wafer’s attorney told WWJ, saying she will “definitely” appeal his second-degree murder conviction.
A suburban Detroit homeowner who opened his front door and blasted an unarmed woman on his porch has been found guilty of second-degree murder.
Is this a case of murder or self defense?
Yesterday he testified he grabbed the gun and went to the door when he heard the knocking because he refused to “cower” in his house. Wafer described the knocking as “violent.”
When asked about McBride, Wafer said he thinks about her every day. “This poor girl, she had her life ahead of her,” he said.
It appears Renisha McBride was knocking so hard she hurt her hand just before she was fatally shot on the defendant’s front porch.
Several phone calls and texts were made by Renisha McBride’s father during the evening when she was fatally shot on Wafer’s porch, according to ATF cell phone analyst Stan Brue.
Theodore Wafer is on trial in the death of 19-year-old Renisha McBride.
On day two of jury selection in the Theodore Wafer murder trial, there were concerns the defense is trying to stack the jury with white people.
