ANDREWS COUNTY - One of the suspects in the murder of an Andrews man has been released on bond.

Lauren Rodriguez was released two bonds of $10,000 each on charges of capital murder and unauthorized use of a motor vehicle.

Meanwhile, Channace York remains behind bars on murder charges.

The victim, Ethan Cole, was killed in Andrews County back in July.

According to the affidavit, a witness spotted Rodriguez in the vehicle and watched York put Cole in the back.

York admitted that the both of them had dumped the body in Martin County.

No word on when their trial is scheduled to begin.
