A Daly City man whose ex-wife poured boiling water over him and then clubbed him with a baseball bat died Friday, and she could now face murder charges, police said.

The victim, whose name hasn’t been released, was sleeping when his ex-wife, Jesusa Tatad, 39, poured boiling water over him Nov. 26 because she believed he was seeing someone else, authorities said. The couple was divorced but still lived together at a home on the 200 block of Coronado Avenue.

The ex-husband ran to the bathroom, where Tatad allegedly was waiting with a baseball bat and clubbed him in the head, police said.

Tatad was initially arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, aggravated mayhem and torture. She could now face a murder charge, said Daly City police Sgt. Michael Barton.
