A woman accused of throwing boiling water on her sleeping ex-husband and beating him with a baseball bat faces a murder charge with a special allegation of torture in California. Prosecutors added the torture allegation against Jesusa Ursonal Tatad on Monday. The couple was divoced but still living together. They say she poured boiling water on Ronie Tatad and clubbed him with a baseball bat when he ran to the bathroom. He died two weeks after the attack. Authorities say the motive was his ex-wife thought he was seeing another woman.
