HOUSTON (AP) - Opening statements have begun in the trial of a Houston woman accused of fatally stabbing her boyfriend with her stiletto heel.

Statements were being heard Monday by jurors in a Houston courtroom in the case of Ana Trujillo. She is facing a charge of murder.

Prosecutors have alleged Trujillo stabbed 59-year-old Alf Stefan Andersson after the two got into an argument at his condominium in June.

Prosecutors say Andersson, a professor and researcher at the University of Houston, became angry when a man tried to buy Trujillo a drink at a nightclub the couple had visited earlier.

Trujillo's attorney, John Carroll, has said his client has "a very valid self-defense claim."

The 45-year-old Trujillo is free on a $100,000 bond.
