Friend: Stiletto stabbing suspect a bubbly TV host
HOUSTON (KTRK) -- We've heard their story -- a woman accused of killing a man with her stiletto heel. Now, we're going beyond the headlines to learn more about them and their lives together.
Ana Trujillo is being held at the Harris County Jail. The prosecutor on Tuesday appealed to the public to come forward with details about her relationship with the victim, her boyfriend.
For the last two days, we've seen the 44-year-old in jail orange and little expression. But her friends know her as a TV host of community access shows.
"She was known as Ana Fox," said a local TV producer who knows Trujillo.
She was known as a woman with a bubbly personality; now, with little to smile about.
"No one really knows what happens behind closed doors," the TV producer said.
The producer, who wishes to remain anonymous, shot video with Trujillo last month. It was set to air soon but since Trujillo is accused of murder by stiletto, the producer is pulling it. She knew both the accused and her dead boyfriend, University of Houston Professor Stefan Andersson.
"Just basically two people who were not supposed to be together," the TV producer said.
The producer talks of fights, possession and even violence.
"She had some bruises on her arms. She said he would try to make her stay, not leave him," she said.
At Lucille's in the Museum District, staff painted a different picture. The couple were regulars. They say both drank heavily but describe Trujillo as the aggressor and even tell of one night when Andersson came in with a black eye.
Trujillo told investigators Andersson became upset early Sunday morning at his 18th floor apartment. A struggle followed and she stabbed him as many as 30 times with her stiletto heel. She claims self defense.
The TV producer takes no sides.
"They were the worst thing for each other," she said.
Depending on who you talk to, Andersson kicked Trujillo out, or she tried to leave. The two had been dating since last fall.
