    Bethesda’s Lululemon store is scheduled to re-open Friday morning, more than three months after a store employee was murdered inside.

    Once a shrine stacked with flowers and notes, balloons and candles, the front of the Bethesda Row store is now emblazoned with the red Lululemon logo and the word “Love” in stained glass. That’s the new theme of the Bethesda store.

    The re-opening comes after an extensive renovation and more than three months after 30-year-old Jayna Murray was killed inside. Her co-worker, 28-year-old Brittany Norwood, has been charged with her murder.

    Brittany Norwood's ex-boyfriend claimed to fear for his safety.

    Norwood originally told police she and Murray were assaulted by two men after work on the night of March 11 -- and that the men tied her up, then killed Murray. Police say evidence both inside and outside the store proved otherwise and arrested Norwood within a week of the crime.

    Murray’s family is at the store for today’s re-opening. Saturday morning, a large crowd is expected to gather across the street from Lululemon for a community yoga class. The class will start at 9 a.m. and begin with a moment of silence in honor of Murray.
