(DAILYMAIL) — A high-school honors teacher accused of and charged with having sex with two students, aged 17, has been fired.

The Richland District 1 school board voted earlier this week to fire 34-year-old Kinsley Wentzky, of South Carolina, from her position as an English teacher at Dreher High School.

Wentzky was arrested earlier this month by police in Columbia and Forest Acres on charges of sexual battery with two 17-year-old male students.
