HOUSTON (AP) - Prosecutors have rested their case in the trial of a Houston woman accused of fatally stabbing her boyfriend with her stiletto heel.

Ana Trujillo (troo-HEE'-yoh) is charged with murder in the death of 59-year-old Alf Stefan Andersson. Investigators say Trujillo struck him at least 25 times in the face with her shoe during an argument at his Houston condominium in June. Trujillo's attorney says the 45-year-old woman was defending herself from Andersson.

Prosecutors presented the last of their 17 witnesses on Friday.

The final prosecution witness, an assistant medical examiner, said numerous uniquely shaped wounds found on Andersson's body were made by the shoe's 5½ inch stiletto heel.

Trujillo's attorneys were scheduled to begin their defense later Friday.
