REDWOOD CITY, Calif. -- A Northern California woman is facing 16 years to life behind bars after being convicted of killing her ex-husband by dousing him with scalding water.

San Mateo County prosecutors say 41-year-old Jesusa Ursonal Tatad pleaded no contest to second-degree murder on Wednesday. She is scheduled to be sentenced May 17.

Tatad and her ex-husband, 36-year-old Ronnie Tatad, shared a Daly City apartment. Prosecutors say she pulled back the blankets while he slept on Nov. 26, 2011, and threw a pot of boiling water on him.

They say she was upset because she believed he was seeing another woman.

The San Mateo County Times reports (http://bit.ly/ZAlm2T) that Ronnie Tatad died about two weeks later of a blood infection connected to his burns.
