The woman accused of murdering her co-worker at a Lululemon store in Bethesda is set to stand trial on Monday.
Brittany Norwood is accused of killing Jayna Murray on March 11.
Police say Norwood beat and stabbed Murray to death after the victim found suspected stolen merchandise in Norwood's bag.
Norwood then allegedly tried to cover up the murder by cutting herself, tying herself up and claiming she and Murray were attacked by two masked men.
Norwood's defense team entered a not guilty plea back in September.
Even with the trial looming, Norwood's attorney said he's still open to negotiating a plea bargain.
