(Houston, Texas) Already facing charges for engaging in sex with a 15-year-old male student, teacher Kathryn Murray, 29, has now been accused of harboring the boy as a runaway.
Police say they found him Friday night with Murray at her father’s home.

He tried to exit out the back door.

The boy, now 16, was Murray’s eighth grade student at Memorial Middle School.

Last year his mother spoke to 11 News about the relationship between her son and his former teacher.

"People like this should not be walking the streets, should not be close to our children," the mother said at the time.

She had hoped all contact would end.

"We are not good, we are very hurt. My son is really confused, hurt. We working with him very closely but he’s not good, not good at all," she said.
Bond for Murray has been set at $100,000.

(Houston, Texas) Former Memorial Middle School teacher Kathryn "Camille" Murray, now 29, has been charged with three additional child sex offenses allegedly occurring before the original February 11 incident.
The boy's parents said their son told them he had sex with Murray twice in her classroom at Memorial Middle School, and at a hotel on February 10, "the night a dance was held for eighth grade students" at the school.

On that occasion, according to the court records, the boy's father dropped him off at the school for the dance, but he met Murray at a nearby church. She drove them to the hotel -- Murray had paid for the room in advance -- and they had sex. She then drove him to "the vicinity of the school," and he walked about 100 meters the rest of the way, according to the records.
Police have gathered hotel security tapes as evidence that the boy and Ms. Murray were in the hotel together.
