We haven’t been posting on the murder trial play by play because it’s pretty much too terrible to report. But if you’re familiar with the horrific events that occurred at the Bethesda, Md. Lululemon store back in March, you may be interested to know that the 29-year-old Brittany Norwood, the woman charged with the killing her co-worker inside the store, has indeed been convicted of first-degree murder, meaning it was (ironically an sadly) premeditated.
Norwood could face up to life in prison for bludgeoning her 30-year-old Jayna Murray, with a hammer, a knife and a wrench, causing 331 separate injuries including a fatal knife wound to the brain. Told you it was horrific.
The judge won’t allow release of motive details but we know it has something to do with Norwood stealing merchandise and Murray in a position to report her. Norwood first reported the incident as a burglary by 2 masked men and set up the crime scene with bloody sneaker tracks and even cut herself to portray attack. Her story quickly fell apart and she was arrested 7 days later.
Sentencing to come January 27th.
