Brittany Norwood, Lululemon Employees took the stand on Friday to describe their interactions with the victim Jayna Murray and Norwood Britain, the employee accused of killing her in the Bethesda store March 11.
One employee, Eila Rab, said Norwood was a friend. The day of the murder, Rab testify and Norwood had lunch together and have a manicure and pedicure. Rab also said he had socialized with the weekend before Norwood, but prosecutors stopped her line of questioning after the defense objected.
Another employee, Chioma Nwakibu also saw Norwood on March 11. Norwood testified wearing a different pair of pants in the evening than in the pictures was taken when Norwood was discovered the next day, bound for a floor bathrooms.
Norwood Britain is accused of first degree murder in the case and the trial is ongoing. Prosecutors have said Norwood killed Jayna Murray co-worker at the store and used to hurt her eight instruments, including a knife, a hammer, a wrench, a type of dummy and an exchange of goods.
They say that Murray had discovered trying to steal Norwood in the store. Norwood staged the crime scene to look as if the two women had been attacked and lied to police to cover up the crime, prosecutors said.
Prosecutors say Murray sustained for at least 322 wounded, most of which occurred while she was still alive. One hundred and seven of the injuries were defensive wounds, according to prosecutors.
Defense is trying to prove Norwood Norwood “lost” and Murray killed during a fight, but prosecutors argued Murray Norwood drawn back to the store and premeditated attack.
Nwakibu Rab and both showed their telephone records in court. Rab said Norwood received a call from the night of the murder, asking the number of Murray, as he had left her wallet in the store. Rab said Norwood suggested calling the store manager Rachel Oertli – who lived in the upstairs apartments in Bethesda row directly across the street – but Norwood asked the number of Murray is that the two had just leave the store.
Nwakibu said Murray received two calls from the night of the crime. Prosecutors were barred from allowing Nwakibu to discuss the nature of the call because Judge Robert Greenberg said it could be considered heresy in a pretrial hearing. Prosecutors have previously said Murray asked Nwakibu during the call if it had sold a pair of Norwood that Murray had discovered in her bag, and said there was Nwakibu.
Prosecutors questioned both witnesses about the location of the pins of goods, one of the objects used to strike Norwood said Murray. Prosecutors tried to prove that remained in one place, and have not been lying around the shop.
Norwood defense questioned employees about the various forms can have an exchange of goods has been misplaced.
