ROCKVILLE, Md. (AP) — Testimony has concluded for the week in the trial of a woman charged with killing a co-worker inside a Maryland yoga clothing shop.

Brittany Norwood is charged with first-degree murder in the March 11 death of Jayna Murray inside the Lululemon Athletica shop in Bethesda.

Two employees at the adjacent Apple store testified Friday that they heard yelling and screaming coming from inside Lululemon on the night of the killing.

Norwood’s lawyer admits his client killed Murray but said it happened during a fight and wasn’t premeditated. Prosecutors say they plan to seek a sentence of life without parole if Norwood is convicted of first-degree murder.

The trial resumes Monday.
