Authorities have charged Isaac Duran, the former student who impregnated his teacher in 2012, with killing the woman and their 4-year-old child, NYPD officials confirmed on Tuesday.

Police discovered the dead body of 36-year-old Felicia Barahona, on the living room floor of her Harlem apartment with an electrical cord wrapped around her neck, early Monday morning.

Officers found her son, 4-year-old Miguel Barahouna, drowned to death in the bathtub.

Police have now charged the boy’s 23-year-old father, with both murders, NBC News4 New York reported.

The boy’s mother was Duran’s former teacher-turned-lover.

During a confession, Duran admitted to both slayings and said he became upset Barahona was meddling in his relationship with his new girlfriend.

Additionally, Isaac Duran also told cops he took “issue” with the way she was raising Miguel.

Neighbors told The New York Post Barahona would display odd behavior and sometimes dressed Miguel as a girl.

Duran told investigators he committed the murders in part because the way she would dress their son as a girl.

Police went to the West 153rd Street apartment after receiving a call from the building’s super regarding a foul odor emanating from the apartment, officials said.

The super last saw her alive this past Wednesday.

Barahona, an Afghanistan war vet, taught science at DeWitt Clinton High School in the Bronx when she engaged in a 4-month sexual tryst with Duran, who was her student when he was 17.

According to a 2013 report by New York City’s Special Commissioner of Investigation, the teacher and student engaged in sexual liaisons about five times a week, and when he asked to use protection, she reportedly told him “not to worry.”

Barahona had her teaching position terminated after she gave birth to Miguel in August 2012 officials said.

An official cause of death has yet to be released by the city Medical Examiner.

Police sources told the Post that investigators believe the bodies remained in the apartment for up to four days.
