Theodore Wafer was found guilty Thursday of second-degree murder and manslaughter in the fatal shooting of 19-year-old Renisha McBride.
Theodore Wafer said he was defending himself when he opened his front door and shot a 19-year-old in the face.
“The defendant’s first thought was to bring a shotgun to the door, not call for help,” the judge said.

“The trial was not about these stated criminal counts, but something far more sinister,” Kilpatrick said.
