courtroom heard of the murder of the lulu lemon athletia store, nearly everyone got to their feet. 18 people never heard of brittany norwood or the brutal murder police say she carried out. when asked who made up their minds on the guilt or innocence of the defendant, 38 people raised their hands. >> the jury selection is probably the most important part of the trial. we're trying to get jurors, particularly in this case, who don't know the facts of the case, which is very difficult to do. and in any situation, particularly a high-profile case like this case. >> reporter: steven cuffperberg, who is not representing anyone in this case s a veteran criminal defense attorney with extensive experience picking juries. >> it's difficult in any case, whether it's in publicity, to put aside what you heard or learned and certainly where you're taabout a high- profile case like this is extremely difficult. >> reporter: britney norwood's parents arrived at the courthouse with a bag of
clothes for their daughter. they did in the speak with reporters. at one point, the judge asked norwood to stand up and face the courtroom to see if anyone in the jury pool recognized her. none did. britney norwood is accused of killing her coworker jana murray during a heated argument during the lulu lemon store the night of march 11th. norwood first told police she and murray were assaulted by two masked men who entered the store at closing time and raped and beat them. the 29-year-old was found in a rear bathroom, bloodied and bound. after days of questioning, the police determined norwoods' wounds were self-inflicted and she bound herself. authorities believe that murray may have confronted norwood over stolen merchandise. during a break in the case today, state's attorney john mccarthy told me he was ax sounded at the number -- astounded at the number of 38, the number of people who were asked if they came to a conclusion as to whether britney norwood was guilty or
innocent. as far as the jury pool is concerned now, 150 came in today, 150 were supposed to come in tomorrow, they want a total of 300 to try to choose 12 jurors and five alternates, shawn. >> paul, i know early on there were talk about britney norwood possibly use the insanity defense. did any of that come up today? >> reporter: that is not going happen for this simple reason, shawn. the defense attorneys had to file some paperwork with the court. if they intended to use that defense, that is the not criminally responsible defense. the reason for that is you have to give the prosecution enough time to hire doctors to examine norwood so they can make a defense of that as well. to say that, well, we don't believe that she's criminally insane. so, since they did not do that, the defense is not going to mount that defense. the question here is what is her defense? we won't know that until we
hear the opening statements. and paul is also blogging and tweeting about the trial from the courthouse g. to www.myfoxdc.com and click on hot topics. look at the top of our news tab. and a death investigation inside a assisted living center today. a husband shot his wife and killed himself inside the village this mother. the police say the 80-year-old albert ballard went to the center to visit his wife, 74- year-old sandra ballard. witnesses heard a gun shot and found the bodies inside her room. the couple lived on parkwood road in rockville. and developing in pennsylvania, more than a dozen protestors at "occupy philadelphia" were led away in handcuffs last night. the officers arrested the demonstrators after spending the night on the street blocking police headquarters and other traffic. three days of arrests have led leaders of occupy cincinnati movement to rethink their
locations. and protestors will move them out of the park at closing time and deliver their message on the other side of the street, something city leaders were asking them to do all along. people in the occupy chicago group looking for a you in place to protest. last not, they camped out in grant park. the last week, 175 people were arrested when they tried to do that and police refused to let them spend the night. and let's check in with d.c. occupiers gathering in down to. they have been camping out the past three weeks and any trouble there some maureen umeh just returned with a closer look. >> reporter: health and safety issues are a concern. park police plan to distribute flyers this week and when protestors bogged guidelines. from what i saw, the rules are being followed. the makeshift kitchen could be considered ground zero. the new battle protestors are fighting again, health and
safety concerns razed since the movement began three weeks ago and heavy rains turn the site into a muddy mess. leaving the officials to express concern. the violations could lead to enforcement and a possible shutdown and protestors have been self-policeing. >> i believe they are probing us to try to find any way they can to shut us down, and this is who way they're trying to do that. >> we're trying to improve our facilities as we go. >> reporter: the kitchen is constantly being cleaned and food preparations handled with help in mind. protestors say area businesses have been allowing them to use their restroom or shower facility but say more is needed. >> we're working on this issue. to get porta potties and to make sure everyone keeps things clean. >> reporter: protestors say their stay is indefinite and they don't want to give cause for removal or any reason to disrupt their ultimate mission.
>> and if they see something, deal with it. this is your park, where you live and your front porch. >> reporter: aside from the health and safety issue, there is a permit problem that may come to a head. the park police have been weighing how to handle that. >> and in the spirit of trying to get their message to a broader audience, in some areas, we have seen the protestors wear suit and ties. any sign of that? i didn't see it in the video. >> i didn't either. this seems to be a more organic sort of movement and they're committed to beingef man and woman. what you saw is reflective of the entire scene and everyone wearing jeans and t-shirts and keeping that loose and wanting to stick to the message that they want to take the government back for the people. >> okay, thank you for the update. now to the state of the redskins. the quarterback change was not enough to stop the panthers from defeating the burgundy and
gold and the team is dealing with mounting injuries. feldy has the latest. >> reporter: it's bad enough they lost and now they have injury on top of insult and things are not going the way they thought of. tim hightower tore the acl on his left knee and he'll be placed on injured reserve and they hope yesterday he could bounce back but no, he's done for the season. santana moss burp went surgery today and exis expected to miss five -- is expected to miss five to seven weeks and rex grossman is in the hospital for pneumonia and has to be there for 48 hours that is a serious bout of pneumonia. he's not in a good scenario and yesterday, john beck led the team to two touchdowns against carolina and in the third quarter, he completed four passes for 81 yards, finished with a career high 279 yards.
the drive culminated with beck using his feet and scrambling for a four-yard score to cut the deficit to 16-13 and that sick rushing touchdown in as many weeks. newton throws the perfect strike to smith, 36 yards for the one and smith with a game high, 143 receiving yards. three playsulary, newton connects with wrapop, two yards for the touchdown and passes for 259 yards. and that is the head coach who took the blame for not having the defense ready to shut down the dynamic cam you inton. >> i can do a better job making sure we're prepared during the week. our defense is too physical and too good and i am going to give them credit, too and they're persistent through the season and i have to make sure i put them in situations more times than not to make sure they're
comfortable. >> and most people believe he has the team on the upswing. but, through 22 games of the head coach, he's 9 and 13 and his predecessor, 10 and 12 after 22 games. ahead of mike shanahan and that is something to think about. >> thank you very much, feldy. we want top who you think is to blame for the redskins loss and their we're woes? text your vote to 29473. text number one if you blame the quarterback, number two if you blame the coach and number three if you blame the defense. standard messaging rates apply. tune in for the results at 10. the prosecution rests and it's time for the defense to mount its case. we're following a new twist in the conrad murray trial. the latest from los angeles is coming your way next. i'm beth parker overlooking

possibility that jackson could have given him a shot of propofol after murray left. >> one of the things he said -- in your testimony was you could not desdiscount discount the possibility that michael jackson woke up, reached up and turned off the limiter on the iv site. is that correct? >> yes. >> reporter: the prosecutor redirect -- conducted his redirection examination. >> dr. murray should have been present in observing the patient. >> are those your opinions that you pull out of then air? are those accepted standards of medical care here in california? >> those are published standards of medical care. >> reporter: dr. schaeffer is the last of the 33 witnesses called. now, the defense getting their turn and they're expected to call 15 different witnesses, including another expert and a longtime colleague, dr. white and some say he's a one-time
