A southern Minnesota woman charged with killing a woman in Florida while on the run from authorities pleaded guilty to first-degree murder Tuesday and was sentenced to life in prison.

Lois Riess, of Blooming Prairie, was charged with fatally shooting Pamela Hutchinson in a Fort Myers Beach condo in April 2018. Riess drove from Minnesota to Florida after allegedly killing her husband, then killed Hutchinson because she had a similar appearance to Riess, according to a Lee County grand jury indictment.
