Stiletto Killer Ana Trujillo Found Guilty of Murder


Truth is stranger than fiction.

A Houston woman was convicted of murder on Tuesday for fatally stabbing her boyfriend. Her weapon of choice? A 5 1/2-inch stiletto heel shoe. 

Fox News Latino reports Ana Trujillo used her high heel shoe to hit 59-year-old Alf Stefan Andersson 25 times in the face. The couple were in the midst of a heated argument at his Houston condominium in June when she killed him.

Trujillo's attorney argued that the 45-year-old woman was simply defending herself during an attack by Andersson, a professor at the University of Houston. A jury sided with the prosecution, and found her guilty of murder.

Police have arrested Trujillo twice in the past for suspicion of driving while intoxicated.

She was sentenced to six months in jail after being convicted.
