A 63-year-old N.C. teacher was charged with sex offenses involving a student. She’s been found dead, along with her shot husband.

HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. (AP) — A North Carolina teacher accused of sex offenses against a student has been found dead in her home, along with her husband who had been fatally shot.

Huntersville police officer Odette Saglimbeni told reporters at a news conference that 63-yaer-old Emma Ogle and her 59-year-old husband were found dead Wednesday, less than a week after Ogle was charged. Saglimbeni said police received a report that morning about an armed person in the couple’s home.

She said the husband hadn’t reported to work that morning and a relative reported finding him dead in the home, where the Garinger High School teacher was reportedly alive and armed. A police statement says authorities entered the Huntersville home and found the couple dead from gunshot wounds. An investigation is ongoing.
