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.
