HOUSTON A trial date has been set for a woman who made national news when she allegedly used a stiletto heel to kill a University of Houston professor.

Ana Trujillo is charged with murder in the death of Alf Stefan Andersson, her 59-year-old boyfriend.

On June 9, HPD homicide investigators said officers responded to a call of an assault in progress just before 4 a.m. at The Parklane luxury condominium.

When officers arrived at Andersson s condo, Trujillo allegedly answered the door with blood on her hands and clothes and showed police the victim s body, which was lying in a hallway between the entryway and the kitchen.

Trujillo said they had been fighting and that it was all done in self defense, according to investigators.

Police said that Andersson was face up on the floor with 10 puncture wounds to his head. Some of the wounds were as deep as an inch and a half, investigators said. Fifteen to twenty other wounds were on his face, arms and neck.

At the time, Trujillo was detained for questioning, police said. She was the only person present when police arrived at the scene. A unit with the UH Police Department was also on the scene.

Andersson was full-time researcher at the UH where he specialized in the area of women s reproductive health.

Trujillo was being held on $100,000 bail.
