The son of a Minnesota woman suspected of fatally shooting her husband then killing a Florida woman and stealing her identity says she is a 'good lady'.
Braden Riess, 30, said his mother, Lois Riess, 56, also 'had her own demons' including a gambling addiction, in an upcoming interview with Inside Edition.
Authorities say Riess killed her husband, David Riess, 54, at their Blooming Prairie home in March.
She then allegedly headed to Fort Myers Beach in Florida where authorities say she last month shot and killed 59-year-old Pamela Hutchinson so she could assume her identity.

Braden Riess said he and his siblings were all devastated to learn of the allegations that she killed their father and Hutchinson.
'It's unbelievable, like, I don't know. I can't wrap my head around it. My mom was a good lady,' he said.
Riess had been on the run since her husband's death.
Mr Riess's business partner called Dodge County authorities on March 23 to ask them to check on him, as no one at work had seen the man in more than two weeks.
