The Lululemon yoga store in Bethesda has been closed for three months after the body of one of the store's employees, was found badly beaten in the store. Another one of the store's employees has been charged in the murder.

A brief power outage threatened to delay the opening this morning, but the electricity was restored before the designated opening time.

A lot of passersby have been looking at the new storefront window that's been unveiled at the Lululemon store after being covered up for about three months as part of renovations. At the top of it is a new multicolored stained class window with the word love spelled out inside of it.

Murray's coworker, 28-year-old Brittany Norwood, has been charged in her murder. Norwood was discovered bound with zip-ties at the time that others found Murray's body, but police said later that the scene was a setup by Norwood.

Police say the motive may have been that Murray confronted Norwood about stealing items from the store.

Those passing by the morning of the opening say this has been very difficult for the neighborhood, and today's opening is one more step in the healing process.

Lululemon will be holding a yoga tribute to Murray tomorrow morning.
