The trial of Brittany Norwood for the killing of her coworker Jayna Murray began Monday with jury selections.
Jury selection gets underway Monday morning in the Lululemon murder case. Given all the pretrial publicity, selecting the jury could take a day and a half.
Attorneys will begin questioning 300 potential jurors about their knowledge of the case and any opinions or connections that might prevent them from being unbiased.
Brittany Norwood is accused of killing her co-worker, Jayna Murray, inside the Bethesda Lululemon store. Police say Norwood beat Murray to death and then pretended to be a victim in order to cover up her crime.
Norwood told investigators that two masked men entered the store, sexually assaulted them and then killed Murray. But police say DNA and other evidence just didn't support her story.
Investigators ultimately concluded that Norwood's wounds were self-inflicted and that she tied herself up in an effort to escape suspicion.
The trial is expected to last two weeks. If convicted, Brittany Norwood could face life without parole.
