A middle school teacher who was caught having sex with a 15-year-old student now faces three additional charges in the case - and was arrested right before fleeing to Mexico.
Kathryn 'Camille' Murray, 28, from Houston, was arrested in February and charged with sexual assault of a child after the teen's brother caught them having sex.
On Tuesday, officials filed three additional charges against her after receiving some information from the school district - that she had sex with the same student three times before the February 11 incident.
Murray was fired from her job at Memorial Middle School after the initial report but it has since emerged she had sex with the boy in her classroom before this occasion.
In the third incident, according to the Houston Chronicle, Murray left a school dance with the student and took him to a hotel room to have sex.
Prosecutors said Murray was planning on fleeing to Mexico before she was arrested for the other three charges and had even closed her bank account.
Kathryn 'Camille' Murray, 28, allegedly had sex with her student, 15, in his home. They were discovered in bed by the boy's younger brother, aged 12
She taught eighth grade at the school for the three years.
According to the initial 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 invited '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.
At a court appearance after her arrest Murray was ordered to say 200 feet away from the teen and was held in lieu of $250,000 bail
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 got a restraining order against Murray shortly after.

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 harms a student.'
Murray is also barred from going near the school.
