Defense Rests in Stiletto Heel Stabbing Case

HOUSTON (AP) - Defense attorneys have rested their case in the trial of a Houston woman accused of fatally stabbing her boyfriend with her 5 ½-inch stiletto heel.

Ana Trujillo is charged with murder in the death of 59-year-old Alf Stefan Andersson. Investigators say Trujillo struck him at least 25 times in the face with her shoe during an argument at his Houston condominium in June.

Trujillo's attorney says the 45-year-old woman was defending herself.

The last defense witness, a pathologist, testified Monday that Andersson might have survived his injuries but faulted first responders for not performing CPR. Firefighters who responded to the scene previously testified Andersson had been declared dead when they arrived.

Prosecutors have said they plan on calling several rebuttal witnesses.
