Theodore Wafer Claims Self-Defense in Reniesha McBride Case
Theodore Wafer heard a banging at the door the night in question. Knowing the dangers of his neighborhood, Wafer “didn’t want to be the victim.” When he went outside, it was 19-year-old Reniesha McBride banging at his door.
Reniesha came to the door from the side, which could have startled Wafer. Wafer needs to prove that he was in “reasonable and honest fear for his life” to prove his innocence. Additionally, he continues to show remorse for the events that occured that night. If Wafer is found guilty, he faces second-degree murder charges.
