HOUSTON – Police have released the identity of man who was found stabbed to death with a stiletto heel early Sunday morning in his high-rise condo in the Museum District.
The Houston Police Department said Alf Stefan Andersson, 59, a research professor at the University of Houston’s Biology and Biochemistry Department, was found dead just before 4 a.m. in his condo, located in the 1700 block of Hermann Drive.
Andersson’s girlfriend, Ana Lilia Trujillo, 44, was arrested Sunday and charged with his murder, court documents state.

On Sunday, HPD homicide investigators said officers responded to a call of an assault in progress just before 4 a.m. at The Parklane luxury condominium.
