Four New Testimonies Reveal Shocking Evidence in Murder Trial

The State's Prosecutor called four witnesses to the stand Monday in the lululemon Bethesda murder trial in Rockville.

The four witnesses included: a forensic lab director and expert in blood patterning, a forensic biologist, and two police officers.

Dr. William Vosburgh, Forensic Lab Director and expert in blood patterning, testified that the beating followed a pattern where the victim was standing, then crouching, and then on or near the floor. He said that the beating started while both were standing.

In one of the photos, you could see the victim, Jayna Murray, on the floor and that her shoes were noticeably clean of blood. Dr Vosburgh testified that her shoes were fairly clean of blood, though pools of blood were found around her, concluding she was not standing very long.

"You would call it a quick timeline of the victim, Jayna Murray, standing then on or near the floor," explained Dr. Vosburgh.
