Renisha McBride, 19, was killed on Nov. 2 in Dearborn Heights, Mich., when she went to a man's house seeking help after a car crash, according to police.
Wayne County prosecutor Kym Worthy announced three charges against the homeowner -- 54-year-old Theodore Hall Wafer -- on Friday, the most serious of which was murder in the second degree.
Worthy, surrounded by assistant prosecutors, Dearborn Heights police and other officials, identified the homeowner as Theodore Paul Wafer.Let's hope there will be justice for Renisha and her family.
"He did not act in lawful self-defense," Worthy said. "There is no evidence of forced entry."
Wafer is scheduled to be arraigned Friday afternoon.
McBride, 19, was shot in the face with a 12-gauge shotgun Nov. 2 by Wafer, 54, who told police he believed someone was breaking into his home. She was unarmed.
Worthy said the shot traveled through a locked screen door.
