Boyfriend in stiletto-heel trial might have been saved: pathologist

Live. Love. Save!

By Amanda Orr HOUSTON (Reuters) – A Texas man who died after his girlfriend attacked him with her stiletto-heeled shoe might have been saved if police and medical responders at his Houston condominium had checked him for heart activity, a pathologist testified at the woman’s murder trial on Monday. Defense attorneys have said 45-year-old Ana Trujillo was acting in self-defense against an alcohol-fueled assault by her boyfriend, University of Houston professor Stefan Andersson. “I did not see any one injury that would have been fatal to Dr. Andersson,” forensic pathologist Lee Ann Grossberg told a Harris County jury. Because his pulse and respirations weren’t checked, we will never know if he could have survived.” Grossberg, who had not directly examined the body, said police and medical crews should have performed CPR or tried other emergency procedures, or at least used an electronic monitor to gauge his heart’s activity.
