DETROIT (AP) -- A June trial is scheduled for a Detroit-area man charged with second-degree murder after shooting a young woman on his porch.

Theodore Wafer was arraigned Wednesday in Wayne County Circuit Court about a month after a judge in another court found probable cause to send him to trial. A not guilty plea was entered. His trial is scheduled June 2 and Judge Qiana Lillard expects it to take two weeks.

Wafer shot and killed 19-year-old Renisha McBride through his screen door before dawn Nov. 2. He says he feared for his safety at his Dearborn Heights home.
Earlier McBride had smashed her car into a parked car about a half-mile away in Detroit. Witnesses say she was injured but walked away. Her autopsy revealed a very high blood-alcohol level.
