Kaitlin Armstrong trial: Pro cycling murder suspect stalked with GPS app, shot victim’s heart, prosecutors say

The Texas woman accused of fleeing the country and getting a nose job after allegedly gunning down a professional cyclist turned romantic rival in Austin last year stalked her using a GPS fitness app and shot her through the heart, prosecutors said in opening statements Wednesday.

Kaitlin Armstrong, 37, is on trial for the murder of Anna Moriah “Mo” Wilson, a 25-year-old star on the gravel cycling scene who had gone out swimming and to dinner with the suspect’s boyfriend, fellow pro Colin Strickland, just before her shooting death.

Caitlin Cash, Wilson’s friend with whom she was staying while visiting the Texas city for a race, called 911 after she came home and found the carnage on May 11, 2022, according to courtroom testimony.

  

Armstrong, wearing a dark suit and her hair down, pleaded not guilty before the judge Wednesday. The trial is expected to take about two weeks. 

Wilson and Strickland allegedly had a brief fling in the past. On the night of the murder, they went swimming together at a public pool in Austin and then to dinner across the street.
