Fatal stabbing by a stiletto heel?

Posted: Updated:

HOUSTON (KPRC) - Homicide investigators in Houston, Texas are trying to find out what lead to a deadly beating.

Authorities said it began with an argument between a man and a woman.

Just before 4 a.m. Sunday, police responded to an emergency call from a woman who said she was being beaten inside a Parklane condominium.

When officers arrived, a woman in her mid to late 40s, answered the door.

"They proceeded to Unit 18B, a female opened the door and officers stepped inside and found the male inside deceased," said Brian Evans of the Houston Police Department.

A man in his early 50s, who lived in the condo, was found beaten and lying on the floor between the kitchen and the foyer, surrounded by a large amount of blood.

Investigators said the man was beaten to death with a stiletto pump.

"It did come as a shock but we feel safe being in the park," said neighbor Robert Obannon. "It is inside a unit. It could happen anywhere."

The woman who was inside that apartment has been taken to the police station for questioning. Currently, investigators said she is the only suspect.
