HOUSTON, Texas (REUTERS) - A woman stabbed her boyfriend to death with a stiletto heel in his upscale Houston condominium after a night of drinking, telling authorities she killed him in self-defence, officials said on Monday.

Ms Ana Trujillo, 44, is suspected of killing University of Houston professor Stefan Andersson, whose body was found at his home early on Sunday.

The couple had been out drinking and returned to the condominium together at about 2am, Harris County District Attorney spokesman Sara Kinney said.

Ms Trujillo, a resident of Houston, later called 911 and said she was being assaulted, police said.
