If you recall, McBride ended up on Wafer’s porch searching for help after she crashed her car on a Detroit street about a half-mile from Wafer’s home. He fatally shot McBride in the face after she knocked on his door.
In closing arguments, the prosecution said Wafer, who claims to have acted in self-defense, should have called police instead of becoming “judge, jury and executioner.” Prosecutors also emphasized that Wafer had other options instead of confronting McBride himself.
The trial lasted a little over a week. The 12-person jury also found Wafer guilty of manslaughter and felony firearm after deliberating for less than two days.
