The man responsible for gunning down Renisha McBride will be appearing before a judge in just a few days.
Nine months after he fatally shot the 19-year-old on his porch, the Associated Press reports that Theodore Wafer is finally expected to appear in court. His trial was originally slated to begin in June, but Wayne County Judge Dana Hathaway pushed it back to July 21.
Theodore is charged with second-degree murder and manslaughter. He’s also facing a felony weapons charge following the November 2, 2013, incident. He shot Renisha in the face through a screen door. She’d come to his place around 4 a.m. looking for help after walking away from a crash.
The Huffington Post reports that witness told the court in a preliminary hearing that Renisha may have had a head injury and that she appeared confused before stepping onto Theodore’s porch. According to their testimony Renisha was only trying to get home after slamming her car into a parked vehicle about half of a mile from Theodore’s home.
