'Lululemon Killer' Brittany Norwood Gets Life in Prison

Illustration for article titled Lululemon Killer Brittany Norwood Gets Life in Prison

Brittany Norwood, the woman who was charged last March with murdering her Lululemon co-worker Jayna Murray at the Maryland store where the two women worked, was found guilty this Saturday of murder in the first degree and sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole. The March 11 murder occurred as the result of an argument between the two women that erupted after Murray, a then graduate student at Johns Hopkins Univeristy, caught 29-year-old Norwood stealing a pair of yoga pants. Norwood then attacked and killed Murray, delivering 330 blows with five different weapons to Murray's body. In attempt to cover up the murder, Norwood inflicted minor wounds on her own body, bound her limbs, and fabricated a story about two third-party attackers, which investigators believed for a few days before unravelling the truth.


Circuit Court Judge Robert Greenberg delivered his sentence with a litany of damning adjectives such as "cold-blood," "brutal," and "malicious" to an applauding courtroom. Murray's parents (pictured above) looked on as their daughter's killer delivered her sincere apologies just moments before sentencing: "Before I go to prison, I needed you to hear how deeply sorry I am."

I'm usually pretty generous about prison, believing in rehabilitation rather than punishment, but this story really makes it hard for me to apply that paradigm in any way.

I mean, one might wonder if there's mental health problems that could be treated, but this seems premeditated on every level. Let her rot. This is American Psycho levels of violence.
