A Daly City woman who killed her ex-husband by throwing a pot of boiling water on him while he slept was sentenced to 16 years to life in prison Friday, according to prosecutors.
Jesusa Ursula Tatad, 41, was sentenced Friday after pleading no contest on April 3 to a charge of second-degree murder with an enhancement for the use of a deadly weapon, according Chief Deputy District Attorney Karen Guidotti.
Tatad was divorced from Ronie Tatad at the time of the Nov. 26, 2011, attack, but the two still shared an apartment together, according to prosecutors.
Jesusa Tatad, who prosecutors say believed her ex-husband was cheating on her, allegedly waited for him to fall asleep and then poured a pot of boiling water over him, causing second- and third-degree burns over 60 percent of his body.
When the victim jumped out of bed and ran into the bathroom, she reportedly hit him on the head with a baseball bat, according to the district attorneys office.
The victim was able to run out of their apartment complex and flag down a security guard, who called 911.
He was taken to an intensive care unit at San Francisco General Hospital, where he remained in critical condition until succumbing to his injuries on Dec. 9.
Jesusa Tatad had been set to stand trial on charges of murder, assault, domestic violence, aggravated mayhem and torture before she changed her plea. She remained in custody without bail during the trial.
Second degree seems light.
What a sweetheart.
I think I’d rather be stabbed to death than this death.
She probably doesn’t speak a word of English ....
how does an ex cheat on you?
this story makes my skin crawl
I'd rather be shot to death than this death.
This is a favorite way that they murder whites in South Africa
coming soon to the IRS as method of political intimidation
Doesn’t get much more wicked than this! Wow!
A horrible way to die.
May Karma catch up to her soon.
I’ve been in hot water with the missus before but nothing like this....
Why not just leave him ?
It was a plea bargain. The prosecution preferred getting a conviction on 2nd degree murder to risking a jury letting her off, and she preferred pleading to 2nd, rather than risking conviction on 1st.
They were divorced, yet she was upset over his "cheating" on her?
She was angry at him, and wanted him to die in screaming pain. This is what a psychopath is.
I’ll say. She took the time to boil the water and set up an ambush for him with a baseball bat. How is that not premeditated?
How are you on this Obama thing?
To which “Obama thing” are you referring?
DiHydrogen oxide is a VERY dangerous toxin! It should be banned.
Rule #1...once divorce proceeding are initiated,do *not* live with your wife!
So you watch "Bullsh*t" too!
It took the guy 14 days to die. Yeesh.
I agree with the poster who said they’d rather be shot.
Au contraire..she’ll be a rock-star in prison..
