TAMPA — A Hillsborough County school district clerk, charged with stalking a high school principal, was recently charged with another misdemeanor count of stalking the principal's wife, who later drowned in the family's swimming pool.

Tracey Seenath, 40, pleaded not guilty to both counts.

She was accused in September of sending thousands of harassing text messages and emails to David Sheppard, who was then principal of Freedom High School. The two had a relationship while they worked together at Wharton High, which Sheppard ended in December 2011, according to court records.

His wife, Donna, died Oct. 29, five days after he gave up his job as principal of Freedom. The Medical Examiner's Office has ruled her death a suicide.

Sheppard now teaches science at Gaither High. Seenath, on unpaid suspension from her job as a property control clerk, has her next court hearing April 3.
