HOUSTON, Nov. 13 (UPI) -- A Houston jury Tuesday convicted Jessica Tata of felony murder in a February 2011 day care center fire that killed four children.

The trial will now move to the sentencing phase, in which Tata, 24, could receive anywhere from five years to life imprisonment, the Houston Chronicle reported Tuesday.

Jurors began deliberating Monday afternoon. Tata showed little emotion when the verdict was read, the newspaper said.
