AUSTIN -- A murder trial is underway in the death of a Huston-Tillotson University student.

Fatima Barrie, 21, was stabbed during a fight outside a downtown club in December 2011. She died just weeks after the attack. 

Friends say Barrie was a stand-out student at HTU and a talented track star.

Kaitlin Ritcherson was arrested and charged in her death.

Police say Ritcherson did not know Barrie before the attack. It happened outside a nightclub near West 5th and Lavaca Streets, just as the bars closed.

Ritcherson faces from five to 99 years in prison.
