HOUSTON (AP) — Authorities have added four murder counts to the case against the operator of a Houston home day care center where a fire killed four children last month.
Court records show the counts were filed Wednesday against 22-year-old Jessica Tata. She already had been charged with four counts of manslaughter, six counts of reckless injury to a child, and three counts of abandoning a child. One count of reckless injury to a child was dismissed.
The charges stem from the Feb. 24 fire that also injured three children.
