There may be some justice for 19 year old woman killed in Detroit.
Theodore P. Wafer, 54, of Dearborn Heights, also faces a manslaughter charge in the death of Renisha McBride in the early-morning hours of Nov. 2, Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy said. McBride was shot in the face after police say they believe she was involved in a car accident nearby in Detroit and family members say she likely approached Wafer’s home for help.
Civil rights groups have called for a thorough investigation, saying they believe race was a factor in the shooting — McBride was black, Wafer is white. Prosecutors insisted that race was not relevant.
“In this case, the charging decision has absolutely nothing to do with the race of the parties,” Worthy said Friday.
Evidence showed McBride knocked on the locked screen door, Worthy said, and that there was no sign of forced entry.
