DETROIT, Mich. – Wednesday, the Detroit-area man convicted of shooting and killing an unarmed teenager on his porch in November was sentenced to 17 years in prison.

After hearing statements from her family, he delivered an apology to those impacted by her death.

 

"To the parents, family and friends, to Renisha McBride, I apologize from the bottom of my heart and I am truly sorry for your loss.  I can only hope and pray that somehow you can forgive me," said Wafer.
