She is charged with two counts of sexual battery and is being held in the Montgomery County Jail. Prosecutors said her case will be presented to a county grand jury.

“We became aware (the teacher was) possibly involved with inappropriate activities with a juvenile,” said Kettering Superintendent Scott Inskeep. “When we become aware of them then we will remove those people and not have them around our students.”
Inskeep identified the substitute teacher as Madeline Marx, 23, of Brookville. She was booked into jail on two counts of sexual battery, according to police.
Police were notified of the allegations against Marx around 8 a.m. Wednesday and by 11:45 a.m. she was arrested after a detective found probable cause for her arrest, said Kettering police Lt. Mike Gabrielson.
Marx remains jailed, pending the filing of formal charges, on two counts of sexual battery. She was booked into the Montgomery County Jail about 1:45 p.m.
According to state records, Marx was issued a 4-year teaching license in 2016 to instruct grades K-12.
Inskeep said Marx, a 2012 graduate of Chaminade Julienne Catholic High School, served as a substitute for the district last year and this year.
Gabrielson could not release any specific details about the accusations or whether the accused activities happened inside or outside the school, but added that official charges will be presented to the county prosecutor’s office within 48 hours.
Marx had no previous incidents with Kettering police, Gabrielson said.

KETTERING — More than 300 people celebrated a reunion for children born in a NICU and their families Sunday afternoon in the Nelson Conference Center located at 3535 Southern Blvd.
Kettering Health Network hosted their third reunion for children who were patients in the hospital’s Level III B Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), according to a release.
Kettering Medical Center’s Level III B Maternity Unit and NICU provides advanced care in one location for patients coping with high-risk pregnancies and fragile infants. The NICU serves all Kettering Health Network maternity centers.
Today was a chance for families and health care providers to check-in on how those graduate children and their families were doing, and included babies born from 2015 to 2017.
Jackie and Danny Milling welcomed their twin daughters Bexley and June into the world last October. “I carried them to 35 weeks pretty good for twins. They still had a lot of things they needed help with,” said Mrs. Milling.
She credits the care she received at the NICU for helping her family get to a healthy start. “The NICU here at Kettering helped out little girls thrive and survive and become just as healthy as they can be.”
This reunion was a second chance for the Millings to meet with what they call their second family. “They get to see our kids grow so much even though they’re still little. It was I think just brought up a lot of fond strong memories,” said Mrs. Milling.
“This is what fills our bucket and brings us back to our home away from home here in the Kettering NICU,” said Clinical Nurse Manager for the NICU Ginny Dalton.
