Lawyers in Jessica Tata case head back to court

HOUSTON

Lawyers for both sides of the case are set to be back in court. /*Tata*/ has filed paperwork to pursue an appeal for her murder conviction in connection with that deadly fire at her home daycare last year.

Four toddlers died when a fire ignited after Tata left a pot of oil on the stove while she went shopping.

Tata was convicted and sentenced to 80 years in prison for the death of 16-month-old Elias Castillo. She still faces three more murder charges.
