ROCKVILLE, Md. (AP) — A Maryland judge has ordered a woman convicted of killing her coworker at an upscale yoga clothing shop to spend the rest of her life in prison.

Twenty-nine-year-old Brittany Norwood was sentenced Friday for the murder of Jayna Murray. She and the 30-year-old Murray worked together at the Lululemon Athletica shop in suburban Washington.

Norwood beat and stabbed Murray during a fight March 11 after the store closed for the day. Murray was found the following morning in a pool of blood, with at least 330 separate wounds.

Norwood told police that two masked men attacked them, but investigators determined that was a lie.

Norwood was convicted in November of first-degree murder.
