The killing of Jayna Murray at the Lululemon Athletica store on March 11 at first seemed random. Police initially believed 28-year-old Brittany Norwood was the brave survivor of a brutal attack. But investigators say the cracks in Norwood's story quickly began to show.

They say Norwood tried to conceal the homicide by tying herself up and blaming the attack on two masked men who she said entered the store after it closed.

Prosecutors say Norwood killed Murray after Murray found suspected stolen merchandise in Norwood's bag. After the hearing, today defense attorney Douglas Wood indicated he's open to negotiations on a possible plea deal on the 1st degree murder charge, but is preparing for a trial. He also says he's is still exploring Norwood's competency.
