Investigators are seeking to extradite to Florida the Minnesota grandmother accused of killing her husband and a Florida woman in an effort to steal her identity, police said Saturday. She always had a smile on her face.

Authorities there have charged Riess with second-degree murder, ID theft and grand theft auto in the death of 59-year-old Pamela Hutchinson.

South Padre Island Police Chief, Randy Smith tells CHANNEL 5 NEWS detectives executed a warrant Friday night to search Riess' vehicle and the hotel room she was staying in.

"He asked her, 'How many people?' and she said, 'No, no, I'm just looking at the menu.' You know and I'm looking at it and I go I know this is the lady", Higginbotham said.

Both Florida and Minnesota authorities have been given a 10 day window to pick her up and transport her to their state.

Riess was reportedly arrested about 30 minutes nearby by USA marshals.
