In May 2011, Covington was employed at New Castle Correctional Facility (NCCF), where she taught anger management and provided other mental health services.

On or about January 2, 2012, the NCCF Internal Affairs received a tip indicating that Covington was engaging in a sexual relationship with a New Castle inmate.

Investigators detected that she’d begun clocking in for work a half hour earlier beginning in November 2011.
