The Lululemon murder was a 2011 fatal violent assault by a work colleague on another commitment to the Lululemon Athletica store in the Bethesda Row shopping district. In November 2011, Brittany Norwood was convicted of the first degree murder of a colleague, Jayna Murray, in the Bethesda, Maryland store, where Lululemon Athletica worked. The prosecutor said that in March 2011, Norwood lured Murray back to the depot after the closure, then attacked her, inflicting over 300 wounded, including head injury and stab wounds. Murray died in the back corridor of the store, after which Norwood staged a crime scene to claim that the intruders had raped both women and killed Murray. The prosecution was prevented from introducing evidence that Murray had accused Norwood of shoplifting. The defense claimed for a second-degree murder sentence, claiming the attack was not premeditated. The case received intense media coverage and was commonly referred to as the “murder Lululemon”. In January 2012, Norwood was sentenced to life imprisonment without the possibility of parole. In an opinion published April 29, 2015, the Maryland Special Court of Appeals dismissed Norwood’s request for a new trial, ending Norwood’s direct appeal options.
