There are new details about the events leading up to the murder of a man who police say was beaten with a stiletto heel by his girlfriend.
Ana Lilia Trujillo, 44, appeared in court Tuesday morning. She is charged with murder in the death of 59-year-old Dr. Stefan Andersson, a University of Houston professor.
According to court documents, the two went to a club Saturday night where they shared two bottles of wine and tequila shots. They then went back to the victim's residence and the pair early Sunday morning got into an altercation about Trujillo leaving town to visit her daughter in Waco.
Police say Trujillo told them that during a struggle she stabbed Andersson several times with her stiletto heel. When officers arrived, police say she was covered in blood, and she told them she reacted in self-defense. Court documents reveal Andersson was stabbed at least 10 times in his head, and he had 15-20 more wounds to his face, arms and neck.
"There was a large amount of blood," said HPD homicide detective Brian Evans. "The blood was in the residence and there was some debris that looks like some type of altercation took place."
"I immediately thought of Ana, when I heard a woman killed a guy with a stiletto," said Jim Carroll, who says her and Trujillo were long-time friends. "She even told me, sitting on my balcony twice, that if anyone ever messed with her she would pull her heel off and said 'I'll get them with this.' The this was a stiletto heel," said Carroll.
In court, prosecutors said Trujillo and Andersson were in a dating relationship, and she was staying with him at the Parklane Condominiums.
Investigators would now like to hear from anyone who has information about them as a couple.
“If the public has any information on whether the relationship was volatile, whether it was good, whether it was bad, we want to know everything,” said John Jordan with the Harris County District Attorney's Office.
Trujillo is being held on $100,000 bond.
