Lululemon Murder Suspect's Lawyers: Norwood Is Mentally Ill

ROCKVILLE, Md. (AP) -- Lawyers for a woman charged with killing a co-worker at an upscale yoga clothing shop in Bethesda say they plan to call at least one mental health expert at the October trial.

The statements in court Wednesday lay the groundwork for a mental health defense for Brittany Norwood. Norwood is charged in the March slaying of Jayna Murray inside the Lululemon Athletica shop.

The lawyers also told a judge that they are trying to suppress five statements Norwood made to investigators after Murray's death.

The trial is scheduled for Oct. 24. The attorneys did not name who their expert would be, but they suggested that their defense may be that Norwood is too mentally ill to be held responsible for the killing.
