“The family of victim Jayna Murray also criticized Apple and its employees, saying after the sentencing that they have never received any words of sympathy or apology from at the company,” Allen reports. “Montgomery County Circuit Judge Robert Greenberg’s voice showed anger while describing killer Brittany Norwood as, ‘cold-blooded… brutal… calculated… deliberate… devious… malicious.’”“Norwood was an employee of Lululemon in March 2011, and was apparently caught stealing a pair of yoga pants after-hours by co-worker Jayna Murray. Norwood attacked Murray, inflicting at least 330 wounds with various objects, police said,” Allen reports. “Judge Greenberg also turned his anger on Apple store employees, including manager Jana Svrzo. In testimonyduring the trial, Svrzo admitted the employees had heard a disturbance next door, and someone screaming, ‘Oh, god, please help me.’ However, none of the employees inquired next door or called police.”
Allen reports, “During his sentencing speech, Greenberg said, ‘The callous indifference of those Apple store employees. They did not do a blessed thing.’ After killing Murray, Norwood tied herself up, wounded herself slightly, and told police that two men had robbed the store and killed Murray. However, her story unraveled within a week and she was charged with murder. Svrzo and Apple have declined to comment about the incident or the employees’ inaction. It’s not clear if Svrzo still works for Apple.”
