A judge has ordered trial for 39-year-old Jesusa Tatad, who, in a jealous rage, went into her sleeping ex-husband's room and allegedly poured a pot of boiling water over him.He had such a will to live that he still managed to flee and get the attention of a guard, who got him prompt medical attention. It just wasn't enough.
Tatad, a Daly City woman, was allegedly upset because she believed her ex-husband was seeing another woman; the couple had divorced, but were still living together at the time she doused him with hot water, according to press reports.
Her fiery rage left him with second- and third-degree burns across 60 percent of his body, which eventually killed him, prosecutors say.
As if boiling water wasn't enough, as the man jumped out of bed and ran to the bathroom, Tatad allegedly then hit him on the head with a baseball bat, according to the San Mateo County District Attorney's Office.
