On Sunday, Investigation Discovery channel will present its version of Jayna Murray’s murder in the season finale of “On the Case with Paula Zahn.”

Not quite a month ago, a Montgomery County judge sentenced Brittany Norwood to life in prison without parole for the savage killing of co-worker Murray last year in the Bethesda yoga shop Lululemon.

In an after-hours confrontation — apparently sparked by Norwood’s attempt to steal a pair of yoga pants — Norwood bludgeoned, choked and stabbed Murray, authorities said, using at least five weapons to inflict more than 330 separate wounds. Then Norwood gave herself a few minor wounds, bound her own hands and ankles in a restroom, and initially fooled detectives with an elaborate tale about a pair of masked intruders, acoording to authorities.

“‘On the Case,’ ” ID said, “is a shining example of ID’s core brand mission to investigate life’s mysteries through riveting storytelling” by unraveling “shocking investigations that have dominated headlines and intriguing original stories uncovered exclusively for ID’s audience.”
