Texas teacher charged with having sex with middle school student

(ABC) - New sex abuse charges for a Houston teacher charged with having sex with a student.

School teacher Kathryn Murray first made headlines months ago when she was charged with having sex with one of her middle school students. Now, prosecutors say that's not the only crime she committed.

Murray is now charged with two additional counts of sexual abuse and one count of improper relationship with a student. When Kathryn Camille Murray mad her last court appearance in March, she had to answer to only one charged of sex abuse of a child. Next time it will be for two more as well as a charge of having an improper relationship with a 15-year-old student. Once evidence of a sex crime surfaced earlier this year, Spring Branch ISD Police Chief, Chuck Brawner says they kept digging.

"And we will not stop until we get to the end of it," said Brawner.

Already charged with having sex with the boy at his home, Murray is now accused of having two more rendezvous inside her classroom at Memorial Middle School. Surveillance video, say police, put the two together at the school back in February. Friday night of that same week, the boy had his father drop him off at the school for the 8th grade dance, but instead Murray picked him up and took him to a nearby hotel where, records say, they were also caught on camera coming and going.

The first charge already cost Murray her job. She is still listed as living in the same home in northwest Houston with her husband. Murray, a product of Spring Branch ISD schools herself, had been with the district three years, but left in shame.

Kathryn Murray is out of jail on bond. She is still required to wear a GPS device, still restricted by a restraining order from going near the 15-year-old boy. She's due in court next week.

Meanwhile, her attorney's office said to call back Thursday for comment on the new charges. Chief Brawner says the student and his family are struggling to repair the damage done. Their attorney says he's pleased with the new charges ...saying quote, "She stole his innocence from him."
