Kaitlin Armstrong, the Texas yoga instructor accused of killing her boyfriend’s ex-fling in Austin, Texas, last year, appeared in a Harris County courtroom Thursday for a pre-trial hearing.
Armstrong, 35, stood emotionless Thursday, displaying the plastic surgery she apparently received when she fled the country using her sister’s passport after allegedly shooting pro cyclist Moriah Wilson, 25, in May 2022.
The suspect is accused of killing Wilson when the 25-year-old athlete was in Austin for a race and made plans to get food and go for a swim at a local pool with Armstrong’s boyfriend, Colin Strickland, also a pro cyclist. Wilson and Strickland had a brief fling in 2021.
Strickland dropped Wilson off at her friend’s residence after their night out on May 11, 2022, and, just minutes later, surveillance footage captured Armstrong’s vehicle nearby.

Armstrong is supposed to appear in court again on June 26, but her attorney, Rick Cofer, told Judge Brandy Mueller that the defense may need more time to gather evidence, according to the Austin-American Statesman.
The 35-year-old is charged with murder, and her bail was set at $3.5 million last year.
