A middle school teacher was caught having sex with a 15-year-old student in his home when his younger brother, aged 12, walked in on the pair. Kathryn 'Camille' Murray, 28, from Houston was arrested on Thursday and charged with sexual assault of a child. She is being held in lieu of $250,000 bond.
Earlier in the week Murray was removed from her post at Memorial Middle School after a report of a then unspecified inappropriate relationship was reported to the principal on February 13.
She has taught eighth grade at the school for the past three years.
According to a police report Murray went to the boys' house the night of February 11 when his parents were away after he invited her over. The older boy had asked his younger brother in advance if he could invite 'Mrs. Murry' over to the home.
Around midnight, according to the 12-year-old, he walked in on the pair in bed. He saw a tan bra and used condom on the floor and the teacher and his brother under the covers.
The older brother then introduced the pair. 'Mrs. Murray, say hit to [younger brother].' She replied 'Hola,' according to the boy, who remembered her voice as that of 'Mrs. Murray, a Memorial Middle School Language Arts teacher.'
When she left the home at 12:30 am she called out 'Adios.'
Interviewed by police afterwards the 15-year-old admitted having sex with her and said he 'was in love with the defendant and he had kissed her.' The boys' family now a restraining order against Murray.
After her initial suspension, before she was fired, superintendent Duncan F. Klussmann said: 'The safety of every SBISD student is our very highest priority. This allegation, if true, represents a complete breach of trust that our children and our community place in our educators every day.
'We will never tolerate any teacher or other employee who takes advantage of and harm a student.'
Children's Protective Services, Spring Branch ISD police, and the State Board for Educator Certification are also investigating.
Counselors were at the school for pupils to offer care and counseling over the alleged incident. Murray is also barred from going near the school.
