HOUSTON (CBS Houston) Ana Trujillo is accused of stabbing her boyfriend, a University of Houston professor to death, with a stiletto heel.
Trujillo made her first court appearance on Monday in Harris County, as a prosecutor in the case provided details of the incident. The 44-year-old woman stood before a judge, patiently waiting for her turn to hear the initial evidence against her.
“Upon arrival, [an] officer rang the doorbell and the defendant, Ana Trujillo, answered the door with blood on her clothes and on hands,” the prosecutor said in court on Monday.
Trujillo who worked as a massage therapist, recently moved in with her boyfriend, Alf Stefan Andersson, a renowned UH professor. The two lived in a high-rise condo in Houston’s famed Museum District.
Legal processionals further stated that Andersson appeared to have about 10 puncture wounds to the head, some being one to 1.5 inches deep. There were also at least 15-20 other visible puncture wounds along his face, arms and neck, according to the prosecutor in the case.
Additional reports indicated that Trujillo admitted to stabbing the University of Houston research professor, whom she called her boyfriend, because he had grabbed her. After he grabbed her, a struggle ensued.
Trujillo, a Mexican national, has asked for a court-appointed attorney. Her bond was set at $100,000.
