An insanity plea appears to be off the table for the woman charged with killing a co-worker in a Lululemon yoga store in Bethesda.
Attorneys for the woman charged in the killing of a co-worker at a Bethesda yoga store failed Tuesday to persuade a judge to delay the trial so they could learn more about their client's "major mental illness," including whether concussions she may have suffered as a collegiate soccer player were a factor.
"We need more record gathering," attorney Harry Trainor Jr. said. "We need all of her classes and educational records. We need employment records, and we need to collaborate interviews with people she played sports with. This is a person who played soccer at a very high level, and that involves impacts to the head. We have to look at history of concussions."
