A former high school student was found guilty of murder after he admitted killing his ex-lover and her 4-year old son. Isaac Infante will face two charges of first-degree murder, and will not be able to post bail.
The details in the tragic denouement of Felicia Barahona and her son, Miguel Barahona, are blood-chilling, to say the least. According to the investigators, the events that led to their death started to unfold in early 2011, when Felicia Barahona (36) taught at the DeWitt Clinton High School.
At that time, Isaac Infante was Barahona’s student. In 2011, the high school teacher invited Barahona at her house in order to engage in sexual activities. Having learned of her improper behavior, Dewitt Clinton High School’s Directorate Board decided to terminate Barahona’s contract in 2012. Their report motivated that the teacher got pregnant because of her rapport with Infante.
Felicia Barahona gave birth to a healthy boy whom she named Miguel. Unfortunately, things didn’t go as smoothly as the woman predicted. Instead of enjoying her relationship with Infante and caring for the baby, the couple would often argue about money.
Infante told the investigators that the woman was taunting him on a regular basis. The man said that he grew tired of the woman’s constant bickering and decided to murder her at her home in Upper Manhattan.
On the 22nd of December, the former high school student went to his ex’s apartment and murdered the former teacher and her son in cold blood. Their lifeless bodies were found by the building’s superintendent who called the police on Monday morning.
The officers who arrived at Barahona’s apartment described the shocking scene. Felicia Barahona laid in the corridor with a telephone cord around her neck, and the young boy was floating in a bathtub filled with water.
Infante, Felicia Barahona’s formed high school student, was apprehended later that day and confessed to both murders. What’s ever more shocking is that the man feels no remorse about his heinous deed.
When asked why he murdered his ex-girlfriend and his son, the man told the investigators that the woman often interfered in his current relationship and that he did not like the way she chose to raise his child.
The man is referring to a couple of pictures posted on the woman’s social media account, where the child seems to be wearing women apparel.
