Life Sentence Sought In Md. Yoga Shop Killing

ROCKVILLE, Md. (AP) — Prosecutors in Montgomery County plan to seek a sentence of life without parole if a woman charged with killing a co-worker at an upscale yoga clothing shop is convicted of first-degree murder.

Brittany Norwood is awaiting trial in the March death of Jayna Murray at the Lululemon Athletica shop in Bethesda.

Authorities say Norwood killed Murray, and then tried to cover up the crime by telling officers that the women had been attacked inside the store by two masked men.

State’s Attorney John McCarthy advised Norwood’s attorney, Douglas Wood, of his office’s intention in a letter this week.

Norwood’s attorney did not return a call seeking comment Friday.

Norwood’s trial is scheduled for October 24 in Montgomery County Circuit Court.

    Fry her. She is a thief and when called on it, became a murderer. Nothing to save in her soul.
