Michigan porch shooter found guilty of second-degree murder

Yahoo! National News - Fri, 08/08/2014 - 06:01

Theodore Wafer sits in the court room during his arraignment in Detroit, MichiganBy Aaron Foley DETROIT (Reuters) - A white suburban Detroit homeowner was found guilty on Thursday of second-degree murder in the shooting of an unarmed black teen on his porch in a case that set off protests and fanned racial tensions. Theodore Wafer, 55, sat stone-faced, staring straight ahead as the jury delivered its verdict after less than two full days of deliberations. The airport maintenance worker faces up to life in prison for killing Renisha McBride, 19, with a shotgun blast through his locked screen door after he was awakened in the early hours of Nov. 2 by repeated, violent knocking on his door. Although the killing sparked protests in Dearborn Heights and comparisons to the 2012 Florida shooting death of Trayvon Martin, a black teenager who was also unarmed, race played little role in the 11-day trial.
