DETROIT (AP) — A toxicology report finds a 19-year-old woman shot to death by a homeowner on a suburban Detroit porch had a high level of alcohol in her system.

A report released Thursday by the Wayne County Medical Examiner's Office says Renisha McBride's blood-alcohol content on Nov. 2 was about 0.22 — more than twice the legal limit for driving. She also tested positive for marijuana, but the report recommends a second test before confirming it.

Police believe McBride was involved in a nearby car accident, and her family says she likely approached the home seeking help.

Prosecutors have been reviewing whether to charge the 54-year-old homeowner. They have scheduled a news conference for Friday.

McBride family attorney Gerald Thurswell says her alcohol level isn't "relevant" to the shooting.
