Warrant issued for day care owner's dad

HOUSTON If his name sounds familiar, it's because he's the father of Jessica Tata, the woman charged with murder after several children died in a fire in her daycare center earlier this year. She had fled to Nigeria where she was arrested and extradited by international authorities.

Her father, Godfrey faces a misdemeanor charge of driving while intoxicated. The charge is from 2006. After numerous delays in the case, the arrest warrant was issued this week after he failed to show up in court.
