Houston - A jury has sentenced a US woman to life in prison for killing her boyfriend by stabbing him at least 25 times in the face and head with the stiletto heel of her shoe.
Ana Trujillo could be seen silently crying on Friday when her sentence was handed down in last June's killing of 59-year-old Alf Stefan Andersson. She was convicted of murder on Tuesday.
Prosecutors say Trujillo attacked Andersson during an argument at his home after a night of drinking. Her attorney argued that Andersson, a professor and researcher at the University of Houston, attacked the 45-year-old Trujillo and that she defended herself with the only weapon available, her shoe.
