that multiple items had been stolen by him from her apartment including her television. when he was apprehended in north carolina, her car was recovered. he had, in fact, stolen her car and had given it to his newest girl friend in north carolina. >> reporter: montgomery county states attorney john mccarthy says police believe they have enough evidence to show lopez was not only responsible for the death of his estranged wife jane, but also to show that he murdered william. detectives found surveillance video from a storage facility in montgomery county showing curtis lopez with 11-year-old william the day william was last seen. >> william was seen on october the 1st in the presence of the defendant and the defendant was seen removing items from the storage facility including a baseball bat. >> williams is gone. i always wanted a child. i took william as my son, but he took that away. >> lopez is charged in the

>> reporter: but then several days later gillespie says some of what norwood was telling investigators wasn't adding up. >> and ultimately it came to the point of the conclusion where she had denied ever being in jayna murray's car. >> reporter: even though in the car police had found brittany's hat and lots of blood. >> and the story where she had said that she left the scene and actually returned and that she had seen police officers after she left the store didn't flag them down for help was pretty conclusive that there weren't two other suspects inside that store. >> reporter: exactly one week after the gruesome killing lululemon sales clerk brittany norwood was charged with her store manager's murder. >> i think that she has a
disturbed view of things and an inability to control her anger and her emotions obviously. >> reporter: police believe jayna murray was killed after confronting brittany norwood about some stolen merchandise. >> yeah. i believe that brittany felt that she did not want to be viewed as somebody who had stole from the store. >> reporter: instead now she's a convicted killer. >> it defies all logic. >> reporter: we asked captain gillespie about that photo one of his officers took of brittany on the floor inside the store. >> i think he felt that she was dead and that had felt that both of them were dead and then it came that she was still alive. >> reporter: gillespie's team of detectives eventually nailed down the truth of what happened inside the yoga store on bethesda row that march night eight months ago. >> really it was a complex case. there were a lot of people, lot of teamwork and ultimately i think we got the right ending. >> with the killer convicted of
premeditated first degree murder now facing life in prison when she is sentenced january 27th. these two high profile murder cases are once again shining a spotlight on maryland's death penalty law which is one of the most restrictive in the country. joining us now is maryland attorney general doug gansler who previously montgomery county state ternes. thank you for coming in. we see -- state's attorney. thank you for coming in. we see two high profile cases and even though this was a vicious crime and some 300 wounds on the victim and it was premeditated, brittany norwood still not eligible for the death penalty? >> that's right. maryland is incredibly restrictive in two ways. one, the laws under which we operate, but two the appellate courts consistently overturned death penalty convictions in maryland since we reinstated the death penalty in 1978.
there's only been five people actually executed and some of those were almost volunteer. so it's very, very difficult. you have to have a hard and fast case in order to even begin to talk about seeking the denver because otherwise you're setting up a false -- death penalty because otherwise you're setting up a false set of promises to the family saying we're going to seek the death penalty. the case in bethesda just the other day would not have qualified regardless of how vicious it was. they were able to get the premeditation based on the viciousness of the murder. that is, you don't have to wake up that morning to believe that you're going to kill somebody that day, but during the course of the murder when you go from one to two to there, up to 331 stab wounds -- two to three, up to 331 stab wounds, somewhere during the course of events premeditation set in. >> doesn't the death penalty bend the will of the loft people. it seems -- the law of the
people? it seems they are trying to take all the teeth out of it. >> yes, it's very much. so whether you're for or against the death penalty and i happen to be for it fore greiges crimes committed by egregious -- for egregious crimes committed by egregious criminals, our system is to function because you have it direct on the books, but it's almost unuseable. you have to show premeditation and deliberation in the first instance and then one of 10 aggravators have to be satisfied in order to even begin to seek the death penalty in mayor and then they tweaked it even worse last session with these three other things where you need to have a picture, a videotape of somebody committing the murder or dna evidence or something of the sort. so it's very, very difficult to get a death penalty conviction in the state of maryland today. >> and eyes are focused back on annapolis for those people for the death penalty and see these two egregious crimes committed in our community.
thank you for coming in tonight. >> my pleasure. >> we want to know what you think. do you believe maryland's death penalty standard should be lowered so it can be applied to more cases? if you'd like to weigh in, go to www.myfoxdc.com. look on the homepage. the herman cain sexual harassment scandal is not going away. three women claim the presidential candidate engaged in inappropriate behavior while he was head of the national restaurant association. tonight one of the accuser's attorneys speaks out. fox 5's tom fitzgerald has the latest. >> reporter: in a brief statement outside his georgetown offices in d.c. joel bennett, lawyer for one of two women who settled sexual harassment complaints against herman cain, says she is seeking permission to speak out. >> i will be sending by e-mail this morning to the restaurant association's attorney a draft statement of my client's position for the restaurant association's agreement for release not withstanding the
confidentiality clause of the 1999 settlement agreement. >> reporter: the new york times reports one of the women who settled claims against cain received $45,000. another received $35,000. the associated press reports a third woman considered filing suit as well. now for its part the national restaurant association released its own statement acknowledging that it has heard from attorney joel bennett and saying that they wanted him to contact their attorney, but what the statement did not say was whether or not the national restaurant association's going to relieve cain's accuse -- release cain's accusers from the confidentiality agreement. for cain the controversy has overshadowed what was going to be the d.c. introduction this week of his presidential campaign. >> herman, i have never sexually harassed anyone. there are factions that are trying to destroy me personally. >> reporter: now statements
from the cain camp are blaming the story being leaked on the rival campaigns of rick perry and mitt romney who both issued denials. >> the american people will look beyond all the silly attacks and ask themselves who could actually get america going again? >> reporter: herman cain insists he was wrongly accused, but with his accusers barred from speaking what exactly happened is unclear? >> the company for whatever reason decided that it was more cost effective to settle than to pursue the case of. >> reporter: herman cain returns to wash -- the case. >> reporter: herman cain returns to washington friday trying to focus on his presidential other than what he has now labeled as a smear campaign. a wound -- on his presidential campaign other than what he has now labeled as a smear campaign. a wounded warrior's story tonight. and tonight on the news edge a stolen purse has left

easier for eric to be able to do things again that he should already be able to do, but it's very hard, very hard. >> he excelled in everything. he, you know, was one of the best on the soccer team, one of the best on his t ball team. anything he does he doesn't ask for help. he figures it out himself. he's a leader. he's a leader. >> reporter: the hospital has not yet seen the lawsuit but released a statement saying in part, "bwmw and all the providers who cared for eric believe the care he received to be thorough and appropriate. eric's symptoms were simply not consistent or indicative of this very aggressive form of infection." the heat also said it applauds eric's parents for trying to educate other parents of the potential complications of advanced strep infections. thousands of wounded soldiers are returning home from the battlefields and many
