Detroit Homeowner Who Claimed Self Defense Convicted of Murder in Death of 19 Year Old :: 08/07/2014

The case of Theodore Wafer, 55, of Detroit, has come to a close. Wafer was accused of second-degree murder in the shooting death of Renisha McBride.

McBride knocked on Wafer's door in November of 2013 following a car accident. She had been drinking.

Wafer claims he feared for his life and shot McBride on his porch with a shotgun, killing her.

Today, Wafer was convicted of second degree murder.

According to NBC News,

McBride's mother, Monica McBride, shook back and forth after the verdict was read, while some of her other family members wept. "She was a beautiful young lady, she had things going for her," McBride's father, Walter Simmons, said.

The prosecutors "had the facts, they had the evidence, they did their job, and they did it well. And we appreciate it."

The jury of seven women and five men deliberated for less than ten hours over two days after closing arguments were heard Wednesday. The prosecution argued that Wafer fired his shotgun because he was angry and looking for a confrontation.
