SILOAM SPRINGS, AR (AP) - Siloam Springs police have charged a 32-year-old teacher in the rape of a 13-year-old boy.

KHOG-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1runPvD ) police arrested Mary Faith McCormick on Wednesday evening. She's listed as a teacher on the Siloam Springs Intermediate School website.

Police say she started the relationship with a former student between June and July using the smartphone application Snapchat. They say she sent the teenager a picture of her breasts.

The teenager told police he had consensual sex with McCormick.

Superintendent Ken Ramey says McCormick is suspended pending the outcome of an investigation.

Online jail records didn't indicate an attorney for McCormick.
