Talk about your killer heels.
Ana Trujillo was found guilty of murdering Stefan Andersson in what has come to be known as the Stiletto Murder Case.
The Houston news anchor stabbed her boyfriend with her blue suede stiletto heels at least 25 times following an altercation in his home. She claimed self-defense, but the jury didn't buy it.
In seven hours of testimony, Trujillo stated that Andersson was a heavy and violent drinker, that she had a history of sexual and domestic abuse by various men she'd dated over the years, and that the fight which ended Andersson's life lasted more than an hour.
The couple had been out drinking and returned home where Trujillo broke the news to Andersson that she was leaving him. He became enraged and a fight ensued and she eventually pinned him down and stabbed him with her 5 1/2 inch heels.
"I had no idea I was hurting him that badly," she said. "I reached over and my hands were full of blood."
When asked why she continued hitting him with her shoe she claimed he wouldn't let go of her leg, so she began striking him anywhere she could reach to try and get him to release her. No bruises or marks were found on Trujillo's body and the only blood at the scene belonged to Andersson.
John Jordan, prosecutor in the case, told jurors that Trujillo--not Andersson--was the violent one in the relationship.
"To take a shoe and to literally beat someone to death, that's a different type of crime," he said.
"Do you think it aggravates it that the person being beaten didn't even fight back?"
The jury was expected to begin deliberating about sentencing on Friday afternoon.
