    Attorneys for a Houston woman accused of fatally stabbing her boyfriend with her stiletto heel are trying to show jurors that injuries documented after her arrest prove she was attacked.

    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.

    A nurse who works at the Harris County jail told jurors Monday she found bruising on Trujillo's legs, buttocks and chest in an examination two days after the slaying.

    But prosecutors suggest those injuries occurred two weeks before when Trujillo got into a fight with an ex-boyfriend.
