In the affidavit the content of the messages is characterized as indicating that “there may have been a sexual relationship.ā€ The alleged victim is a student at Copperas Cove High School.

When Manville was questioned by police about the relationship she said initially that it was “only conversations via Facebook.” However, the affidavit goes on to note that she said to the investigator, ā€œIā€™m tired of this.ā€ She then went on to admit that she had had a sexual relationship with the student. She said that the teen came to her house at night and that after her children were asleep they had sex together.
