Yoga store slaying
Ihave never seen such a savage killing… you’re one hell of a liar,” the judge told Brittany Norwood as she sat timidly, staring blankly at the courthouse floor. Months earlier, in March 2011, Norwood was working with Jayna Murray – a fellow sales assistant at the Lululemon Athletica store in Washington, DC – when, having been caught trying to steal a pair of yoga pants, she used a hammer, wrench, knife and other weapons to murder the 30-yearold in a prolonged and brutal attack.
Jayna was found alive in a pool of blood with 331 wounds, including a crushed skull and severed spine. She died in hospital.
Norwood, 29, had spun a story saying two masked robbers had carried out the horrific attack. But the high-profile trial proved there were cracks in her claims and she was convicted of murder and sentenced to life without parole.
Norwood staged a fake crime to cover her murder. Victim Jayna.
