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.

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.

The victim was still able to run out of their apartment complex and flag down a security guard, who called 911. He was taken to San Francisco General Hospital, where he remained in critical condition until he died on Dec. 9.

A San Mateo County judge ruled at the end of Thursday's preliminary hearing that there was enough evidence to order trial. Tatad has been charged with murder and torture for the November 2011 attack.

Tatad is in jail without bail pending arraignment on July 31.

I flagged it as profanity. The moderators at SF Weekly clearly believe it is okay for a man to threaten me with rape in public. If you have flagged it as well, that makes twice that it has been reported and twice that they have elected to keep it here for all to see. He says it was a "joke" and not a threat. Attempting to intimidate and belittle a woman with criminal sexual violence in response to her verbal opinion, then, is an acceptable joke according to SF Weekly... and he has not been banned from further commenting.

You decided to spend 8 paragraphs on something that means nothing to you? We know who brought the drama here, and I don't need to put you in your place.  You did that just fine on your own, LOL!  And if it's so unimportant, why did you comment in the first place?  Hiding behind an alias all the while, which renders your cruelty immaterial.  That was a nice try at reinforcement, though. You do have the bully thing down pat. I am free to express my opinions in public forums; isn’t that why they have comment sections on news sites?  I looked at your profile and see I am not the only one you verbally attacked, and then criticized for defending themselves.  My favorite part is where you lecture me about “classy” moves. Because assault and rape are so classy? If you choose to take history, facts and statistics personally during your trolling hours, that is entirely up to you. You have again not debated ISSUES, just insulted me personally because you cannot refute records. I’ll bet you googled around and tried, though!  And the more you couldn’t find anything to back up your rants, the angrier you became.  Otherwise, we’d be talking statistics.  BTW, I didn't start the tangent on this article, obbop did. I refuted his non-facts. I also didn't say anything to you about my organic intelligence level  – you chose to highlight it, and I thank you. I’m flattered you think I’m so intelligent. This is why sociologists love gender studies. So fascinating. A group of men trying to convince a woman that men are more logical and exhibit better control – by name-calling and threats of criminal physical violence. That really is quite priceless.  :)

Your drama aside, and as much as you would love it because you obviously thrive on persecution, imagined or otherwise, nobody threatened you with anything. I offered you a ride. You don't want it? Fine. But I think you could use it. How is it, with all your big brains, that you could possibly apply the time and effort to respond to words that were written, by me, to be as vulgar and worthless as possible? I wrote that junk as a joke, and to see if you'd be dumb enough to respond. You were dumb enough and you literally surprised me. You're a little mouse in a maze. You're nothing more than an experiment, some cheap and easy entertainment. I don't really care about what you're trying to say or why - none of this means anything to me. I don't even care that this woman boiled her husbands face off. I say good on her. Took some balls to be that creative and to follow through. I especially love how she cracked the fucker with a bat after dousing him in boiling water. And she certainly gave your dumb ass a platform with which you were able to completely detract from the article, as if it wasn't dramatic enough, and create your own little drama fest. I think you owe this woman some money on her books for inadvertently providing you this opportunity - cash enough for a candy bar and maybe a good book to pass the time. I seriously didn't think you would respond. I thought you'd consider yourself above such things and move on - that would have been the only classy move. But you're so hung up on proving yourself, even to abusive strangers, so obsessed with winning this little, useless, completely unimportant "debate", you'd argue anything that came your way, even if it involves "cunts" and anal penetration. It is pathetic and sad that you'd put so much into trying to prove something (what are you trying to prove?) to anonymous people you do not know, will never know, who don't care about you, and who will have forgotten every single thing you wrote here within a couple days, if not sooner. But you, on the other hand, will remember my cruelty. You made sure of that when you responded to it. You're a glutton and not nearly as intelligent as you think you are. If you were as smart as you keep telling everybody, you'd have been long gone by now. But hey, you win something or other, right? Congrats! Looking forward to your next response. Can't wait for you to put me in my place.

obbop, plenty of females demand equality in the military. Google the phrase "lift ban on women in combat" and you may be surprised at the amount of hits, up to and including women soldiers who have banded together and SUED branches of the armed forces to lift combat bans because they wish to serve their country in this way.

Wow, you're SO right. Attempting to bully me with sexual violence really does prove that men can be adept at impulse control and restraining their emotional anger, LOL!! Truth hurts. Facts are facts.  I notice none of you actually responded to my post with cited sources + numbers with any studies that contradict the reality of male crime and violence. Civilizations throughout history all bear the same patterns. Males by and large create the majority of danger and destructiveness. Arguing that very well-documented point is about as useful as a colorblind bomb squad, and all you blokes have done is prove that you cannot carry on a rational debate without insults, name-calling, blatant profanity, and now actual rape threats. Let's see... so far, I'm a feminazi, a bitch, and a cunt... but you know what I am not?  I am not wrong. Otherwise, you would easily and calmly cite the sources backing up your own argument. The reason you are so furious and irrational is because deep down, you do know the truth. But, you're very entertaining, and you may not realize it, but you keep proving my point again, and again, and again, and again!  Kisses! :)

Ms. Archuletta. I imagine you're awaiting further response; perhaps it is my turn to surprise you, perhaps not. I don't care about this conversation. To be honest, I wasn't here to converse and haven't read many of the posts, including yours. What I do care about is what I wrote to you, which was disgusting, crude, uncalled for, and stupid. I'll not make excuses for myself but will admit that I've been under immense pressure as of late, have been dealing with some fairly serious issues that have ground me down and, basically, I cracked and lashed out, perhaps helping to prove your basic point. Over a period of days, I did this to you and to several other people and I am very sorry. I'd like you to know that what I wrote is not how I am. I'd never do anything violent or hurtful like that so please don't let my disguting comments reflect upon your general outlook. I sincerely apologize to you and to everybody that had to read my comments. I am sorry.

And if certain types of bitter, ineffective men were truly secure in their manhood and not so afraid of women, you would not feel the need to insult our entire gender via illogical generalizations, thus lighting the fuse on debates such as this one in the first place.  By continuing to spout hypocritical venom, you simultaneously insult your own mothers, wives, sisters and daughters as well.  You wouldn't be here if a healthy-bodied woman had not labored to bring you into the world. Bear in mind you also just spewed your defensive thoughts to anonymous people, so... Pot? Kettle? Same shade of black? LOL!

 I wonder why I have never heard a female demand equality with males in regards to signing up for the military draft? Equality?  Sure!!!!!! I believe that only females fill enlisted (non-officer) positions until the equality of female combat death and injuries equals the number of males injured and killed from 1776 to today. I have to allow male officers since I sincerely doubt there are enough females with the "right stuff" to replace males in those positions.

If you bitches were truly confident in your opinions, and actually as smart as you'd like for us to think, and not lacking self esteem, you would not feel the great need to spew your defensive thoughts here for dozens of anonymous "people" that could not care less about you or anything you have to say. Think about that for a moment. Should be easy for you to comprehend, because you're so smart and all.

90% of statistics are made up on the spot. It would be fabulous if we could judge each case on its own merit, rather than deciding one case of a crazy lady is indicative of an entire insane generation of women, but these silly emotional men just can't think critically anymore.  They have suffered several decades of disappointment and humiliation at the hands of women who don't date assholes- and now they must lash out on message boards because that's the only time they actually talk to women. I was born in Wyoming, sweetheart, and I never needed your permission to vote- this state wrote it into the constitution from the very beginning. Its cute when men try to patronize us into being sweet wifely things that submit to their superior intellects.... except they voted to allow me to go to school, and by second grade I was smarter than Bob over there... so it really is a self-defeating system, huh guys?

Don't worry that I am becoming overly emotional, Heather. I'm not. I'd just like to take a little space ride with you and maybe stick my cock in your ass. While you're bent over and I'm working away, you can talk about your various degrees, etc, all you want. Doesn't really matter what you talk about. I never listen, anyway. Hope that's not terribly chauvinistic. I'd really hate for you to get the wrong idea! So, how about that ride? Wanna hook up?

Not in the defense of the OP, but your "facts" are way off. Any recent report show a closer to 50/50 split on initiating partner violence and abuse. There is no cover up, the data is there. The media and people like you perpetuate these lies. 

Heather Archuletta
Heather Archuletta

Nonsense again. And you already know that. No way could women cover crimes at that magnitude; it has nothing to do with reporting.  All humans are emotional, and each gender has different means of expressing themselves.  We all know females are far less harmful than males who cannot control their anger or aggression. If you argue that basic reality, you're only fighting for the title of being weaker, LOL!  Kind of a lose-lose situation you chaps have insisted upon in this debate ;)

LOL, your emotionally ranting CAPS-laced response says far more about your insecurity and than it will ever say anything about what "all females tend to be."  Such generalizations are clearly nonsense, no statistics back you at all, your opinion is biased and sexist, and your tantrum compared to her statement is pretty hilarious. Here's you: http://www.news.com.au/technology/it-just-makes-me-happy-when-i-can-make-someone-angry-a-special-investigation-into-the-dark-world-of-trolling/story-e6frfro0-1226278282934

Sigh................. more illogical, irrational thinking but this time from a male. Ponder your declarative statement, lad. Casting a worthless label based upon one short message board statement. Are you one of the modern-day girly-men who have been so well-indoctrinated by this, to me, increasingly anti-male society?

obbop

  I believe I have AGAIN witnessed female emotion coming to the forefront over logical, rational thinking. "Females tend to be" I believe that one word within that fragment of a statement would allow a reader with a semblance of adult-level reading ability to comprehend the message I was attempting to communicate. Message board limitations require the writer to condense a message that likely requires much more space to properly convey. However, I thank you very much for your reply since, to me, in my OPINION, your reply reinforces my general belief that today's typical USA female is best avoided in the workplace, society in general and is all-too-often a clear and present danger to all rational, civil, law-abiding and moral males.

This is so messed up. This woman is obviously jacked in the head and needs to be put up where she can't hurt anyone else.  As far as obbop's comment, I doubt you can really put females into a box like that. Come on, little analytical thought? Asinine- I'm way more logical than I am emotional.

only because men report less of thier insane behavior to the police than women because of social stigma and a sexist against men at every path court system the say justice is blind but the problem is at sometime or another she got pms bigtime DOWN WITH THE FARCE OF NEWAGE FEMINISM AND BALL BUSTING SEXISM

Heather Archuletta

Bah. Nonsense. Just another chauvinist myth in terms of what some insecure men "like to think" about women. Females didn’t snap at Columbine, did they?  Um, no.  Females aren't the majority of serial killers, are they?  Nope again. When’s the last time you even saw a bench clearing brawl at a female sport?  Statistically, far more men than women stalk, threaten, harass, physically harm, and murder their partners than the other way around. Men are also far more often the ones who do not effectively or logically manage their emotions, egos and selfish actions. How many women compared to how many men lose their tempers and create violence, commit crimes of passion, use weapons, assault people, rape people, start fights, start wars, etc?  In every society in history, the prison populations all over the world illustrate the facts just fine: men are the ones who cannot control themselves.
