HOUSTON (AP) – A prosecutor has told jurors that a Houston woman stabbed her already injured boyfriend to death by sitting on him and striking him in the face at least 25 times with her stiletto heel.

Ana Trujillo is charged with murder in the death of 59-year-old Alf Stefan Andersson as the two argued at his condominium last June.

During opening statements Monday at Trujillo’s trial in Houston, prosecutor Sarah Mickelson said the two had a contentious relationship and that Trujillo had a history of being angry with Andersson.

Prosecutors also say Andersson, a professor and researcher at the University of Houston, became angry when a man tried to buy Trujillo a drink at a nightclub the couple had visited earlier.

Trujillo’s attorney, John Carroll, told jurors that Andersson had repeatedly abused his client, and that on the night of the slaying she had used the shoe to defend herself from another of his attacks.

Carroll also said his client has “a very valid self-defense claim.”

The 45-year-old Trujillo is free on a $100,000 bond.
