Daly City woman attacks lover with boiling water and baseball bat

A lover accused of philandering was literally in hot water.

The San Mateo County district attorney is prosecuting a Daly City woman on charges that she poured an entire pot of boiling water on her man while he was sleeping Saturday, believing he had been unfaithful.

Jesusa Ursonal Tadad, 39, appeared in a San Mateo County courtroom Monday on torture and aggravated mayhem allegations. Meanwhile, the man she lives with — who also happens to be her ex-husband — remains in critical condition at San Francisco General Hospital.

The unidentified victim has second- and third-degree burns covering 60 percent of his body, District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said Tuesday.

The victim has not been able to speak to investigators because of the severity of the burns, Wagstaffe said.
The district attorney said Tuesday the attack appears to have been premeditated.

Tadad’s ex-husband works the night shift and came home looking for some shut-eye, Wagstaffe said. Enraged that he might have been cheating “with some floozy” rather than working, the woman waited until he went to sleep around 10:30 a.m. to douse him with boiling water, Wagstaffe said.

“It wasn’t like she was cooking breakfast,” the district attorney said. “She boiled up that pot of water to pour on him.”

But that wasn’t the end of the attack.

The ex-hubby awoke in intense pain and ran to the bathroom. Armed with a baseball bat, Tadad waited for him to come back out, Wagstaffe said. She then struck him in the head with the bat, the district attorney said.

The man managed to run outside and find a security guard to call 911.

In her first court appearance Monday, Tadad was appointed a public defender and bail was set at $600,000. She appeared again in court Tuesday, but the scheduled proceedings were continued to allow her attorney more time to review the case.

She is now set to enter a plea Dec. 7, Wagstaffe said.

Tadad remains in custody. She has no criminal record in San Mateo County, Wagstaffe said.
