Brittany Norwood, who was charged with killing her coworker Jayna Murray at the Bethesda Lululemon store, was found guilty of first-degree murder Wednesday evening.
The jury began deliberating at 5:46 p.m. and wrapped up deliberations around 6:51 p.m. They were instructed to consider both first-degree and second-degree murder verdicts.
There was a sigh from the Murray family and an audible "yes" after the jury read their verdict.
Juror Donny Knepper said that just as jurors began their deliberations, one informally polled the group to gauge who was leaning towards a first-degree murder verdict. Everyone raised their hands, Knepper said.
