Houston’s Stiletto Murder Trial Is Interesting

Houston’s stiletto murder appears to be coming to a close and it has captured the attention of a nation. Its understandable why too. Just think of that first series of headlines which may have read something like, “Woman Kills Man With Shoe”, or, “Woman Murders College Professor with Stiletto Heel”, and so forth. However, there is usually more to the case than what the headlines may read, which is why we have criminal justice trials.

HOUSTON

Attorneys for a Houston woman accused of fatally stabbing her boyfriend with her 5 1/2-inch stiletto heel used a martial arts expert during her trial on Monday to demonstrate for jurors how they believe she was attacked on the night of the killing.

Ana Trujillo is accused of striking 59-year-old Alf Stefan Andersson at least 25 times in the face with her shoe during an argument in June at his Houston condominium.

Trujillo’s attorney has contended the 45-year-old woman was defending herself from an attack by Andersson. Source

Now call me crazy, but when you bring in a martial arts expert as a witness in a trial we’ve got to be looking at some the stuff “Made for TV” movies are made of. On a more serious note, if was being attacked by a man, she would have needed a weapon. At the end of the day, men are physically stronger than woman and if she was being attacked by a man, she would need a weapon of some sort to even the odds. Enter the Stiletto Heel.

According to news reports the case has gone to the jury for deliberation. Hopefully when the jury completes their deliberation they’ll come to the conclusion that this was indeed a murder which stemmed from a self defense.
