Marisela Lopez, 29, was arrested for a felony warrant out of Amarillo for Murder, a 1st Degree Felony.

Christopher Scott, 31, and Lauren Stevens, 32, were also charged and arrested.

According to the Odessa Police Department, their officers were called out to 2833 East IH-20 early Thursday morning for a report of a possible kidnapping.

The person involved in the call left the scene but was found by the Ector County Sheriff's Office and turned over to Odessa police. The woman reportedly gave police a false name before she was eventually identified as Lopez. Police then learned that Lopez had a warrant for murder out of Amarillo.

Police say their investigation then led them to a motel room where they found Scott and Stevens. The duo reportedly had 0 grams of methamphetamine, multiple scales, several plastic bags, marijuana and a firearm in their possession. They were also found to be convicted felons.

All three members of the group were then charged and arrested accordingly. Police say that more charges are expected in the case.
