Theodore Wafer, 54, has been found guilty in the murder of 19-year-old Renisha McBride. “I have no problem locking up entire families,” the judge is reported to have said to the courtroom while asking for calm as the verdict was read. Wafer, who was convicted of second-degree murder, had claimed self defense in the shooting death of McBride who, disoriented and unarmed, went to his door late one November night after getting into a car accident.
