Fugitive Grandma Accused of Killing Husband and Lookalike Woman Is Arrested in Texas

The search for fugitive 56-year-old grandmother Lois Riess ended last night in South Texas with her arrest at a restaurant on South Padre Island.

Police officials in Minnesota — where she is alleged to have killed her husband last month before going on the run — confirm to PEOPLE that Riess is in custody.

Riess was tracked down by the U.S. Marshal’s Service with the assistance of South Padre Island police, PEOPLE learns.

Riess is accused of killing her husband and then traveling to Florida, where she allegedly killed a woman who looked like her so she could steal the victim’s identity.

On March 23, investigators found the body of her 54-year-old husband, David Riess, inside their Blooming Prairie home riddled with bullet wounds.
