FILE - In this Oct. 24, 2012 file photo, Jessica Tata, accused in the deaths of four children at her west Houston daycare, stands at the conclusion of opening statements at the Harris County Criminal Courthouse, in Houston. Some parents took great care in vetting a list of state-licensed day care providers before leaving their children in the hands of Tata. As Tata’s murder trial plays out, child care experts say that while the state has taken steps to improve regulation of home day care centers, Texas is among many states lagging behind what advocates believe should be the standard for keeping tabs on the centers.(AP Photo/Houston Chronicle, Mayra Beltran, File) NO SALES; MANDATORY CREDIT; MAGS OUT; TV OUT
