Officials said she was the getaway driver for three teenagers who broke into the house. However, a resident was home and shot all three of them to death.

Rodriguez spoke with FOX23 News from the Wagoner County Jail on Thursday and said they knew what could happen going into the crime.

“We always said if there were guns (it’s) every man for themselves,” Rodriguez said.

She was arrested on three counts of first degree burglary and three counts of first degree murder.

In Oklahoma, those believed to be committing a felony that results in a death can face murder charges, even if they did not actually kill anyone.

However, she doesn’t agree with charges.

“I feel responsible for the actions that were taken place and I feel sad and upset about their deaths and their murders. But I don’t feel responsible for their murders,” Rodriguez said.

A fifth person was in the car at the time of the burglary but officials have not filed any charges against her. She has not been identified.
