HOUSTON, Texas (AP) – Officials say a Houston woman accused of stabbing her boyfriend to death with a stiletto high heel told police she was trying to protect herself.

Officials with the Harris County District Attorney's Office tell the Houston Chronicle that 44-year-old Ana Lilia Trujillo told investigators the man was attacking her and she acted in self-defense.

Trujillo was charged with murder in the stabbing death Sunday morning of a 59-year-old man at a luxury high-rise condominium. His name has not been released.

Police say officers responding to a call about an assault in progress found the man's body lying on the floor. He had more than one stab wound to the head.

Trujillo remained jailed Monday on $100,000 bond. Court records did not list an attorney for her.
