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.

    Wineries flourish in Brooklyn

    Hundreds of oak barrels of wine are all stacked in one room. You might think this is Napa, California. But it's not. It's the Brooklyn Winery, located in what was once an old pickle factory in Williamsburg. Refrigerated grapes are brought in from the North Fork of Long Island and from the Finger Lakes and then aged in barrels. These days urban wineries are becoming more popular, and they're popping up all over the borough.
