WAGONER COUNTY, Okla. (KTUL) — The arraignment for a woman arrested Monday after a home invasion turned deadly was postponed Tuesday while the investigation continues.
Elizabeth Marie Rodriguez, 21, was arrested on a probable cause affidavit for three counts of first-degree murder, one count of first-degree burglary and one count of second-degree burglary. According to the affidavit, Rodriguez admitted to dropping the suspects off at the house and fleeing when she heard gunshots. Hours after the shooting she went to the Broken Arrow Police Department, saying she had information on the case.
Rodriguez's arraignment was scheduled for 1 p.m. at the Wagoner County Courthouse but the judge postponed the hearing because the investigation is ongoing and the District Attorney's Office has yet to see the report. A bond has not been set.

Early Monday afternoon, Wagoner County deputies responded to a report of a home invasion near 91st and Clearview Drive where shots had also been fired. They found three dead burglary suspects when they arrived.
Investigators say two of the suspects were armed and all three arrived at the house wearing black clothing, masks and gloves.
The homeowner's 23-year-old son, Zach Peters, told deputies he encountered the suspects after they broke in through a glass door on the back side of the house. After exchanging words, Peters opened fire.
Investigators say they don't believe the suspects had any connection to Peters, but a witness referenced in the probable cause affidavit said Rodriguez had previous knowledge of the house and called the homeowner by his first name.
The affidavit goes on to say Rodriguez planned the burglary, taking the suspects to the home on two separate occasions prior to Monday's break-in.
In addition to Rodriguez, the suspects' have been identified as 19-year-old Maxwell Cook, 17-year-old Jacob Redfern and 16-year-old Jaykob Woodriff.
At a news conference Tuesday afternoon, investigators said they are still trying to confirm the suspects' identities but they have tentatively notified family members.
The Wagoner County District Attorney's Office will determine whether Peters is charged, but a spokesman for the sheriff's office said Monday the preliminary investigation showed it was likely self-defense.
Formal charges for Rodriguez aren't expected until late this week or early next week.
