Jurors found Theodore Wafer guilty of second-degree murder and manslaughter. He had been on trial for the shooting death of Renisha McBride, a teen who’d gone to his door in the middle of the night after being in an accident.

Because McBride was African American and Wafer is white, some people had pointed to parallels with the Trayvon Martin case.
