Judge Limits Graphic Photos In Md. Yoga Shop Case
ROCKVILLE, Md. (AP) — A judge has limited the use of graphic photographs that prosecutors may show in opening statements in the trial of a woman charged with killing a co-worker at a yoga clothing shop in suburban Washington.
Jury selection is expected to conclude Wednesday in the case of Brittany Norwood, who is charged with fatally bludgeoning co-worker Jayna Murray on March 11 inside Lululemon Athletica in Bethesda.
Opening statements will be given after jury selection.
Montgomery County Circuit Judge Robert Greenberg restricted prosecutors’ use of certain pictures during opening statements, including one showing Murray’s crushed skull. He said other pictures, including one showing Norwood as she was found inside the shop after police were called, were permissible.
Prosecutors say Norwood killed Murray, then told police they had been attacked by two men.
