A Michigan man has been charged with second degree murder in the shooting death of 19-year-old Renisha McBride.
Theodore Paul Wafer, 54, also known as Ted, was taken into custody today, The Detroit News reports.
Wafer claims he shot McBride in the face in “self defense” when she knocked on his door seeking help after a car crash on Nov. 2. McBride’s family was notified of her death on Nov. 4. Police initially said her body was “dumped” in the Detroit suburb.
Prosecutor Kym Worthy announced the arrest today during a press conference in Detroit.
“We obviously do not feel that the evidence in this case reveals that the defendant acted in lawful self defense,” Worthy said.
Renisha McBride’s killer waited until her body was cold before calling 911 to report the shooting, according to The Detroit News.
Seeking help after wrecking her car, 19-year-old McBride knocked on the door of a home in the Detroit suburb of Dearborn Heights last Sunday. Instead of assisting her, the homeowner (identified by McBride supporters as Ted Wafer) opened the door and shot McBride in the face with a single shotgun blast.
McBride is black. Ted Wafer is white.
