South Padre Island, Texas (AP) – A woman who investigators believe killed her husband in Minnesota then fled to Florida where she used the same gun to slay her doppelganger with the intention of assuming her identity has been captured at a South Texas resort.

Two federal deputy marshals arrested 56-year-old Lois Riess Thursday night at a restaurant in South Padre Island.

Riess had been on the run since March when her husband was found fatally shot at their home in Blooming Prairie, Minnesota.
