Prosecutors add torture claim against wife accused of pouring boiling water on husband By The Associated Press

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. (AP) ' A woman accused of pouring boiling water on her sleeping ex-husband is facing a murder charge with the special allegation of torture.

The San Mateo County Times reports ( that prosecutors added the torture allegation Monday against 40-year-old Jesusa Ursonal Tatad of Daly City.

Prosecutors say she poured boiling water on her ex-husband, 36-year-old Ronie Tatad, as he slept on Nov. 26. The couple was divorced but still living together.

Prosecutors say she then clubbed him with a baseball bat when he jumped up and ran for the bathroom.

Jesusa Tatad has not entered a plea. She is due back in court on Jan. 23.
