A trial has been set for a woman charged with killing a coworker at an upscale yoga clothing shop in Bethesda, Md.

At a hearing Friday in Montgomery County, a judge set a date of Oct. 24 for the trial of Brittany Norwood. The trial is estimated to take eight days.

After the hearing, defense attorney Douglas Wood said he's open to negotiations on a possible plea but is preparing for a trial.

Norwood is charged in the March slaying of Jayna Murray at the Lululemon Athletica store. Norwood killed Murray after Murray found suspected stolen merchandise in Norwood's bag, police said.

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.
