MURRAY - A teacher and coach accused of placing a video recorder in a bathroom at a local high school has resigned.

Coy Samons, Murray Independent School District superintendent, announced on Monday that Murray Independent has accepted the resignation from 53-year-old Mark Boggess as teacher and coach. Samons said the position will be advertised and a replacement will be selected for the 2019-2020 school year.

The Murray Police Department said in a release that officers responded Thursday to Murray High School after staff reported finding a recording device set up in the bathroom of the nurse's station. Police spokesman Sgt. Brant Shutt said the video recorder captured the person putting the device in place.

Police arrested Boggess, who is a teacher at the school as well as the track and field coach. He is charged with possession of matter portraying a sexual performance by a minor and voyeurism.
