The woman charged in the Stiletto high-heeled shoe stabbing death of her boyfriend appeared before a judge for the first time since her arrest.
Ana Lilia Trujillo, 44, who is charged with murder in the death of Alf Stefan Andersson, 59, appeared in probable cause court around 8 p.m. Monday and then appeared in court before Judge Brock Thomas on Tuesday morning.
Trujillo was arrested before 4 a.m. on Sunday after Houston police arrived to an apartment complex on Hermann Drive near Almeda Road in response to a reported assault-in-progress.
Investigators say Trujillo answered the door with blood visible on her clothing and hands. When officers demanded that she sit on the floor, they found Andersson lying on his back with his face up and not breathing.
Police say Andersson was struck in the head with Stiletto heel multiple times and the shoe was lying by his head.
Andersson suffered ten puncture wounds to the head, some of which were between 1 and 1.5 inches deep. He also suffered more than 15 puncture wounds to the face, arms and neck.
Trujillo, who was born in Mexico and is not a U.S. citizen, told police that she stabbed Andersson in self-defense because he grabbed her and the two began to struggle. She will remain in jail on a $100,000 bond.
