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.
