Ana Trujillo, Texas shoe stabbing trial: Sentencing pending after conviction

Prosecutors say woman acted in self defense

HOUSTON (AP) -- A Texas jury that convicted a Houston woman of fatally stabbing her boyfriend with the 5 1/2 -inch stiletto heel of her shoe is set to hear more testimony before deciding on a sentence.

The punishment phase in the trial of Ana Trujillo (troo-HEE'-yoh) is scheduled to begin Wednesday morning in Houston. The jury took just two hours to reach a verdict in the case Tuesday.

Prosecutors say Trujillo used the shoe to strike 59-year-old Alf Stefan Andersson at least 25 times in the face and head during an argument at his Houston condominium last June.

Trujillo's attorney argued that the 45-year-old woman was defending herself against a violent attack by Andersson.

Andersson's friends have described him as kind, mild-mannered and not violent.
