HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. — A North Carolina high school teacher accused of having sex with a student is dead along with her husband following a SWAT incident at their home on Wednesday, authorities told FOX46.
Detectives tell WSOC that Emma Ogle’s husband, 59-year-old Michael Ogle, did not show up for work Wednesday morning and a relative went to the home to check on him. That family member told police she saw Emma Ogle inside the house holding a gun.
Emma Ogle, 63, was arrested Thursday and was facing several charges after being accused of sexual misconduct with a teenage student, police say, WSOC reported.
