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.

Los Angeles Police respond to a hostage situation but instead of shooting the suspect they shoot and kill an innocent hostage trying to escape.  Investigators say John Winkler, a television producer, went to his neighbor’s home during a fight to try and help but ended up being held hostage by a man with a knife.

When police arrived, two men came running out covered in blood and police mistook Winkler for the suspect. Police say he matched the description of the suspect, Andrew McDonald.  McDonald is now being charged with murder and two counts of attempted murder and torture.
