Attorneys for a Houston woman accused of fatally stabbing her boyfriend with her stiletto heel brought in a martial arts expert to demonstrate for jurors at her trial how they believe she was attacked on the night of the killing.
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 from Andersson.
During the trial in Houston Monday, martial arts expert Chris Martinez and another man performed a demonstration in which the two rolled on the ground trying to recreate the struggle Trujillo alleges happened between her and Andersson.
