Renisha McBride Murder Trial Begins Today

By Carla Murphy Jul 21, 2014

Jury selection begins in Detroit today in the case of Renisha McBride, the unarmed and disoriented 19-year-old black woman shot by Theodore Wafer, 54, on his front porch after she had been in a car accident. Although "stand your ground" is reportedly not being used by Wafer’s defense, McBride’s murder last November has drawn attention for its similarities to the Trayvon Martin-George Zimmerman incident.
