Killer heels: Stiletto murderer gets life in prison

Ana Trujillo, the woman convicted of killing her boyfriend with a stiletto heel, was sentenced Friday to life in prison in a Houston, Texas, courtroom, according to the Harris County district attorney's office. On Tuesday, the jury deliberated for just two hours before returning with a guilty verdict for Trujillo. 

Prosecutors said Trujillo stabbed her boyfriend, Dr. Stefan Andersson, 25 times with her stiletto heel in June 2013. The defense argued that it was self-defense. They claimed Trujillo was the victim of abuse, and that there was a fight that night and Trujillo grabbed her shoe to ward off an attack.
