A Minnesota woman who is wanted in connection with her husband's death is now charged with killing a Florida woman who resembled her, then stealing the woman's identity as she eluded authorities, officials said Friday.

At a news conference Friday morning Lee County Undersheriff Carmine Marceno told reporters that 56-year-old Lois Riess is wanted for murder in the death of a Fort Myers Beach woman. US marshals have joined the search. The auto has been seen in Louisiana and Corpus Christi, Texas, since Hutchinson died. Marceno stated detectives feel that Riess could be applying Hutchinson's name as an alias, and stole a 2005 Acura TL using Florida license-plate Y37TAA, the victim's vehicle.

"Riess' mode of operation is to befriend women who look like her and steal their identity", Marceno said.

Lois Ann Riess, 56, is now wanted for felony theft.

Law enforcement say they believe that after David Riess was killed, Lois Riess transferred almost $10,000 from his business account into his personal account and then forged her husband's signature on three checks to herself for $11,000. He eventually sold his shop and opened a commercial worm farm, the Prairie Wax Worm Farms, outside Blooming Prairie. Deputies went to the worm farm on Hwy. He had been shot multiple times, Rose said, and police were not initially able to determine how long he had been dead.

Riess's crime spree began March 23 in Blooming Prairie.

Lois Riess is believed to have taken $10,000 from her husband's business bank account before fleeing.

"Lois Riess is 5'5", 165 pounds with brown eyes and was last seen with light blonde hair, although she has altered her appearance in the past. Authorities warn that she is considered armed and extremely unsafe. Anyone with information on her whereabouts is urged to call authorities. When officers from the sheriff's office, the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension and Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation arrived, they determined Riess had left.
