Theodore Wafer, 55, is accused of shooting Renisha McBride, 19, in the face through a screen door in Dearborn Heights when she knocked on his door looking for help after an early morning accident last November. Taking the stand in his racially charged second-degree murder trial, Wafer said he "shot in fear" when he saw a figure coming to his door. Wafer wept during his testimony on Monday, saying he regretted killing the unarmed McBride but that the violent knocking on his front and side doors made him think someone was trying to break into his house. Wafer has testified that he couldn't find his cell phone to call police, and went to the door with his shotgun.
