NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — A man who in 2012 fathered a child with his then-high school teacher is due in court Wednesday for allegedly killing them both in their Hamilton Heights apartment.
Police said 23-year-old Isaac Duran Infante confessed to killing 36-year-old Felicia Barahona and their 4-year-old son, Miguel. He faces double murder charges in connection with the deaths.
Barahona was found Monday in her apartment with an electrical cord around her neck. Her son was found face down in the bathtub.
Police said Infante was in New York City from Pennsylvania visiting friends and family for the holidays.
During his confession, police said he admitted “he didn’t like the way Barahona was raising the child that included dressing him in feminine-looking clothing.”
Also, that he had a new girlfriend and Barahona “was interfering with that relationship” and that he was “tired of paying child support for the kid.”
A 2012 report by school investigators determined the 36-year-old Barahona began a sexual relationship with Duran Infante when he turned 18.
The report found Barahona believed she and Infante would get married before their relationship ended. Barahona was fired as a New York City public school teacher, but she was never arrested for that relationship.
