HOUSTON--Jury selection was underway Friday in the murder trial of Jessica Tata.

Tata s home daycare caught fire a year and a half ago, killing four children. Investigators said Tata left a pot of oil burning on the stove at her west Houston day care while she went shopping. The house went up in flames and seven children were trapped.

This week, a judge ruled that the jury will be able to see a receipt from a Target store. Prosecutors say that receipt proves their case. Opening statements are scheduled for next Wednesday.
