Theodore Wafer, charged with second-degree murder in the killing of Renisha McBride last November, will face trial in June. Are you ready? I think this will be like the George Zimmerman Trial II, but I'm hoping for a verdict that doesn't make me want to restage the Los Angeles riots this time.

On Wednesday, Wafer entered a plea of not guilty during a hearing before Michigan's Wayne County Judge Qiana Denise Lillard. He was arraigned on charges of manslaughter, second-degree murder and a felony firearms count and his trial is slated for June 2-13.
