Texas Authorities Find 2 Pistols in Motel Room, Riess Held without Bond

Law officers hope new video, audio helps in hunt for Minnesota 'killer grandma'

At her first court appearance Saturday Riess was still wearing the same yellow camisole and shorts she was arrested in.

The vehicle she was using was towed and impounded "for forensic processing" and she was held in the Island jail until being taken to Brownsville for Monday's arraignment.

Authorities thanked Higginbotham for the tip that led to Riess' capture and so did relatives of Hutchinson, the woman Riess allegedly killed in the Fort Myers condo because they looked alike. The 56-year-old fugitive was the subject of a national hunt after her husband, David Riess, was found fatally shot last month at their home in Blooming Prairie, Minn.

Cameron County prosecutor Edward Sandoval claims Riess will show up at an extradition hearing to send her to Florida.

After almost a month on the run, Riess was arrested the night of April 19 by police at a South Padre Island, Texas, restaurant after an employee spotted her. Riess was arraigned on Saturday by the South Padre Island Municipal Court, and is being held without bond.

Segovia is scheduled to appear for a hearing before 185th District Court Judge Susan Brown on Tuesday. Precinct 7 officers found Segovia trying to drag her 9-year-old toward a bayou, investigators said.

Riess did not stay at Dirty Al's long, Higginbotham said.

Riess had been spotted most recently gambling at a casino in Iowa.

Riess went missing in March after her husband was found dead.

A murder suspect may be heading back to the state in which one of her murders took place.

A cousin of Pamela Hutchinson called George Higginbotham.
