Montgomery county states attorney, John McCarthy says on the night of the murder, at Lululemon, the store manager asked Jayna Murray to check Brittany Norwood's purse before closing. Murray did, and called the manager to say she found stolen merchandise in Norwood's bag. According to McCarthy, the manager told Murray she would handle it in the morning. When Murray and Norwood returned after closing the shop, they were heard arguing over the suspected theft by neighboring shopkeepers.

Police and prosecutors say Norwood killed Murray to cover up the theft, but were her actions premeditated?

"I think the charge that was brought is an appropriate charge and our argument for pre-meditation will be made at the time of trial to the jury," McCarthy says.

Norwood is being held without bond on one count of first degree murder.
