Theodore Wafer, of  Dearborn Heights, was charged Friday with second-degree murder, manslaughter and possession of a firearm in a felony in the shooting death of 19-year-old Detroiter Renisha McBride.

Wafer, 54, faces arraignment Friday afternoon in the charges, Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy announced.

McBride killed on Nov. 2 by Wafer,whose lawyer said was “justified” in firing at McBride.

Worthy said Friday that the evidence shows Wafer did not act in self defense. Wafer said he believed his home was being broken into by “person or persons,” and that he feared for his life, according to his attorney, Bloomfield Hills lawyer Cheryl Carpenter.

McBride’s family and their attorneys will hold a press conference today at 3pm.

  • I’m having a hard time believing that she had twice, and some reports are saying three times, the legal amount of blood alcohol content. I’ve had both female and male friends that I’ve had to carry on my back and rush to the hospital after a night of too much drinking; that’s alcohol poisoning, which is fatal and can lead to death.

    There is no way she would’ve walked out of the crash with three times the legal amount of blood alcohol content. Something is rotten in the state of Denmark, or in this case, Dearborn Heights…

    Any who. On another note, please I urge everyone to know their limits (your weight, height, family health history, liver condition, and that are factors in how much alcohol your body can handle) when it comes to drinking because yes you can die from drinking too much.
