Daycare owner found guilty of murder

     Jurors have finally reached a verdict in the trial of 24-year old Jessica Tata, a Houston, Texas daycare owner who, in 2011, left children alone in her house while she went shopping at Target. As a result, four children died in a fire because she left a pan of grease heating on a stove, and three others were badly injured. After the tragedy, she fled to her home country of Nigeria to hide. After authorities found her and brought her back to the U.S., her trial began, and just yesterday, she has been officially charged with four counts of murder, three counts of abandoning a child and two counts of reckless injury to a child. Her defense claimed it was an accident, and not murder.
