At least two more witnesses are expected to be called by defense attorneys to counter the four days of testimony from the prosecution. It’s not known whether Trujillo herself will take the stand.
The defense put its first witness on the stand, a worker from the bar where the victim, University of Houston Professor Stefan Andersson, frequented. Friday’s witness testified that Andersson drank frequently.
The defense is trying to convince the jury that the victim was an alcoholic who attacked Trujillo in June and that she acted in self-defense. She hit him at least 25 times in his head and face with her 5 1/2 inch stiletto shoe.
However prosecutors say he seemed to have defense wounds, which suggests he had been on the ground trying to protect himself from Trujillo.
