DEARBORN HEIGHTS, Mich. (AP) -- A suburban Detroit homeowner charged with fatally shooting a 19-year-old woman on his porch has been arraigned on murder and other charges.

Theodore P. Wafer made an initial court appearance Friday in Dearborn Heights District Court. The 54-year-old faces second-degree murder, manslaughter and felony firearm charges in the death of Renisha McBride early on Nov. 2.
 
Wafer's bond was set at $250,000, and a preliminary examination was set for Dec. 18. He said "yes" in response to the judge's questions. Wafer posted bail later that day.
 
Wafer's lawyer, Mack Carpenter, says his "client has a very strong defense."
 
McBride was shot after police say they believe she was involved in a car accident nearby in Detroit and family members say she likely approached his Dearborn Heights home for help.

    From coffee shops in Brooklyn to restaurants in Manhattan, we find speakeasies standing out by blending in. When people in Bushwick want a green machine juice blend they visit Leticia Castillo's Owl Juice Pub. But first they must find the owl. "We been doing fine without a sign," Castillo says.

    Only 10 percent of people who get CPR from a bystander actually survive. But two young men in Westchester County have now patented a device that could dramatically increase those odds and save lives. John and Chris DiCapua's sitting room in their parents' Westchester County home has had a unique guest lying around for quite a while now: a CPR dummy. What began as an idea from their time as Boy Scouts is now a device that could potentially save lives.
