HOUSTON (AP) - A judge has denied a request to lower the bond for a Houston woman accused of fatally stabbing her boyfriend with her stiletto heel.

The request by Ana Lilia Trujillo was rejected during a court hearing Tuesday in Houston. Her attorney, John Carroll, plans to appeal the decision.

The 44-year-old Trujillo remains jailed on a murder charge with bond set at $100,000. She was indicted by a grand jury Monday. Her trial is scheduled for Jan. 7.

Prosecutors allege Trujillo stabbed 59-year-old Alf Stefan Andersson after the two got into an argument at his condominium in June.

Prosecutors say Andersson became angry when a man tried to buy Trujillo a drink at a nightclub the couple had visited earlier.

Carroll says Trujillo has "a very valid self-defense claim."
