A homeowner has been charged with second-degree murder in the shooting of an unarmed woman on a suburban Detroit porch earlier this month.

Renisha McBride, 19, was killed on Nov. 2 in Dearborn Heights, Mich., when she went to a 54-year-old Theodore Paul Wafer’s porch seeking help after a car crash, according to authorities.

On Friday, hours after the Wayne County prosecutor announced three charges against Wafer — the most serious of which was murder in the second degree — Wafer turned himself in and was arraigned.
