HOUSTON (AP) - Jurors have begun deliberating the sentence of a Houston woman convicted of stabbing to death her boyfriend with the 5½-inch stiletto heel of her shoe.
Ana Trujillo (troo-HEE'-yoh) was convicted of striking 59-year-old Alf Stefan Andersson at least 25 times in the face with her shoe during an argument in June at his Houston condominium. Trujillo's attorneys have contended the 45-year-old woman was defending herself from an attack by Andersson, who was a University of Houston professor and researcher.
The jury got the case following closing arguments in the trial's sentencing phase earlier Thursday.
Prosecutor John Jordan asked jurors to sentence Trujillo to life in prison.
Trujillo's attorney, Jack Carroll, asked jurors to be merciful, and requested a two-year sentence.
