SAN ANTONIO -- The family of a prominent San Antonio businessman has opened up about what may have lead up to his death last Thursday.

Bill Hall, Jr., 50, died hours after sheriff's office investigators say his wife used her Cadillac Escalade to run him off his Harley Davidson motorcycle.

Frances Hall, 50, is also accused of ramming into a Range Rover driven by her husband's girlfriend and chasing her after Hall, Jr. had wrecked his motorcycle.

The incident happened on Loop 1604, near Macdona-Lacoste Road.

Hank Hall, a fellow truck company owner and Bill's cousin, said Bill picked up his motorcycle from his company's headquarters Thursday evening.

Hank said his cousin had some sort of altercation with his estranged wife while picking up the motorcycle. Hank and Bill were scheduled to ride their motorcycles to Corpus Christi Friday. 

Hall, Jr. was struck while traveling south on Loop 1604 about 1.5 miles from where his business is located.

He and his wife had been married 32 years, but family members say the couple had recently separated.

"Bill was trying to leave, he set her up and was giving her the world," said Hank, when asked about the couple's relationship status.

Investigators have not released the name or age of the other woman involved Thursday night.

In a Facebook post in February 2011, Frances seemed to address rumors of possible infidelity:

"Well I thought I'd put the rumors to rest. He's not with a 22 year old he's with a 47 year old. Sorry people!!!! There's no black eyes or legal council. Wishful thinking on all your (expletive) hearts. Look at your own miserable life before you judge mine."

Hall has been charged with murder and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and is free on $225,000 bond.

According to Bexar County pretrial services, Frances Hall has been placed on full house arrest, and can only leave her home for court appearances, to meet with her attorney or for medical emergencies.

Court documents list her attorney of record as Johnny E. Cisneros.

Cisneros declined to comment on the charges against his client when reached for comment Monday afternoon.

Bill Hall, Jr.'s rosary is scheduled for 7 p.m. Friday at Porter Loring Funeral Home at Loop 1604 and Gold Canyon.

Services are scheduled for 9 a.m. Saturday.

Hall Jr.'s cousin said family and friends will honor Hall, Jr. with a convoy of semi trucks and motorcycles from the funeral home to his final resting place at Our Lady Queen of Heaven Parish at 11150 Macdona-Lacoste Road.
