Cross-dressing home invader goes to trial in Tyler

TYLER, TX (KLTV) - The trial has begun for a suspected East Texas home invader.

Maricela Rodriguez is accused of breaking into a Tyler home back in April.

Tyler Police say Rodriguez, disguised as a man, forced a mother and her three children into a bedroom and tied them up with duct tape.

The family was eventually able to escape through a window in that bedroom with no serious injuries.

After her arrest, Rodriguez reportedly told police she had broken into the wrong house.

She is now charged with burglary and immigration charges.
