On Monday, police, responding to an emergency call, found Felicia Barahona on the living room floor of an apartment in Manhattan with an electrical cord around her neck and her son unresponsive in a bathtub.

According to the newswire, the sexual relationship between Barahona and Infante began in 2011 when Infante was still a minor and Barahona was his teacher at Dewitt Clinton High School in New York City’s Bronx borough. She was fired after their relationship became public.

They had once planned to marry after Miguel was born, but they split up after arguing about several issues, including Infante's alleged underage drinking.
