Renisha McBride's Killer “Wanted a Confrontation'”: Prosecution

Prosecutors on Wednesday argued that the Detroit man who fatally shot a 19-year-old woman on his front porch last year did so in a fit of anger, and not out of self defense. Theodore Wafer, 55, was looking for a confrontation when he shot Renisha McBride on November 2, 2013, prosecutor Patrick Muscat said, and he argued that the jury only had to find that Wafer either intended to kill McBride, intended to cause her bodily harm or knowingly created for her a high risk of death. Closing arguments in the trial started Wednesday after two days of testimony from Wafer, who was charged with second-degree murder.
