The elderly woman was released this March, but deputies say a recent incident led to her parole being revoked and a warrant issued for her arrest.News 4 went to the listed address of Marie Reilly out in Converse for answers.But a man who says he's Marie Reilly's son, couldn't give us any."She doesn't want me to talk to anybody until I talk to her [parole officer] first," he said.Bexar County Deputies say they've gone out to Reilly's home several times this past month alone."Most of the incidents stem from bad relationships between her, a grandchild and the grandchild's boyfriend," said James Keith, Bexar County’s chief communication officer.It was early last month when Reilly's parole was revoked and a warrant was issued for her arrest."Ms. Reilly found a steak knife in a bathroom,” said Keith. “She questioned [the boyfriend] about it, they ended up getting in an argument and according to him, Reilly threw the steak knife at him while he was holding his daughter hitting him in the arm and cutting him."Reilly was arrested Sunday after deputies responded to yet another disturbance report.She was convicted for killing Jayne Hays in 2006.Reilly worked for Hays as a housekeeper, who accused her of stealing money."This is a woman that despite her age has shown that she has a violent tendency,” said Keith. “Even if that means she has to have a walker to get around, she's too dangerous to be out at least based on what we know."The sheriff's office says everybody involved in this situation is no stranger to the law.The reason why this wasn't reported when it originally happened because the grandchild's boyfriend had warrants of his own and was afraid he'd get arrested.

San Antonio is one of nine cities that submitted bids to host the big game in 2019 or 2020.The CFP watched a short video at the Alamodome about what San Antonio has to offer and then the committee toured the dome. The members learned about the $44 million facelift the Alamodome will undergo before it hosts the NCAA Final Four in 2018.Some of the upgrades include, expanding the concourse where the concession stands are by 40 feet, adding four large high definition screens in each corner of the arena, expanding the digital ribbon board screens all the way around the dome and building a new 24,000 square foot multi-purpose space."That's the kind of thing I think the NCAA will say, ‘We asked you do certain things and you came through for us,’" Richard Oliver, with the San Antonio Convention and Visitors Bureau said.Oliver said the game is anticipated to boost San Antonio’s economy by $300 million."Football, national championship, college in Texas, it's going to be big. We feel pretty good about it,” Oliver said.After the CFP toured the Alamodome, the committee floated down the Riverwalk on a barge and was welcomed by chanting fans at the Arneson River Theatre.The University of Texas at San Antonio cheerleaders led the crowd in a “CFP” chant and dozens held signs showing their support for the national championship to come to San Antonio."I think it would mean a lot for the city,” Diana Canavan said. "We would be happy to greet all the visitors coming to San Antonio and tell them about our city."Die-hard football fans said if the top game is played in San Antonio, then it will open the door for San Antonio to get bigger and better things."The possibilities for our future is just out there and if they can see that we can bring a big show like national championship to San Antonio, it just puts us at the next level toward NFL,” Melissa Kim said.CPF officials will wrap up their tour in San Antonio on Thursday. The committee will tour eight other cities also bidding for the top game. Those cities are, Bay Area (Santa Clara), Charlotte, Detroit, Houston, New Orleans, Minnesota, Atlanta and South Florida.“We are pleased that the leaders in these communities recognize the significance of the event, and we are excited about what we know will be a competitive bidding process,” CFP Executive Director Bill Hancock said in a news release. “In its first year, the national championship game brought tremendous opportunity to North Texas as the epicenter of college football, and we know that success will continue in the future.”The dates for the games will be January 7, 2019 and January 13, 2020.The 2016 game will be in Glendale, Arizona, followed by Tampa, Florida in 2017.
