It could have been a gruesome murder or the end result of love gone wrong. Irrespective of motive, a man was killed. Ana Lilia Trujillo, 44, is charged with the murder of a Texas college professor, Alf Stefan Andersson — he was a full-time research professor at the school’s Center for Nuclear Receptor and Cell Signaling.
Andersson, a research professor from the University of Houston, had 10 puncture wounds on his head, some of which were deep as an inch and a half. Prosecutors also allege Andersson had 15 to 20 puncture wounds along his face, arms, and neck. Trujillo allegedly used one of her own stilettos to commit the murder.
When authorities arrived at Andersson’s apartment on Sunday, Trujillo, who had recently worked as a massage therapist, answered the door with blood on her clothes and hands; Andersson was lying in the hallway face up, with a stiletto by his head. Trujillo told investigators that Andersson grabbed her, and a struggle ensued amongst the two.
Trujillo remains in jail. Her bail is set at $100,000.
