The Lululemon Athletica in Bethesda reopened in June, three months after a brutal murder that happened in the store. Brittany Norwood, a former Lululemon employee, is charged with killing her coworker after the store closed one night in March.
Lawyers for a woman charged with killing a coworker at an upscale yoga clothing shop in Bethesda say they plan to call at least one mental health expert at the October trial, according to the Associated Press.
The statements from her lawyers in court this morning lay the groundwork for a mental health defense for Brittany Norwood. Norwood is charged in the March slaying of Jayna Murray inside the Lululemon Athletica shop.
The lawyers also told the judge they are trying to suppress five statements Norwood made to investigators after Murray's death, according to AP.
The trial is scheduled for Oct. 24. The attorneys did not name who their expert would be, but they suggested that their defense may be that Norwood is too mentally ill to be held responsible for the killing.
