HOUSTON - Jurors have convicteda Houston womanof stabbingher boyfriend to deathwitha 51/2-inch stiletto.

Prosecutors said Ana Trujillostabbed 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.

Testimony showed the victim bought the $1500 shoes for Trujillo.

Her attorneys said she was defending herself from an attack by Andersson, a UH professor and researcher.

Prosecutor John Jordan told jurors that Trujillo's actions were not self-defense but 'vicious murder.'

Jack Carroll, Trujillo's attorney, countered that his client did the only thing she could do while being attacked: defend herself.

The jury got the case after closing arguments Tuesday in Trujillo's Houston trial. They deliberated only two hours.

Trujillo, 45, faces up to life in prison.
