SANANTONIO -- Hours after a district court judge ruled that Frances Hall can return to work, her attorney shared with KENS 5 a few graphic details of the type of evidence that will be submitted on her behalf during her upcoming murder trial.

Frances Hall was granted partial house arrest during Wednesday's pre-indictment hearing in the 186th District Court, which means she can now drive herself to and from work as long as she avoids traffic and parking tickets.

Hall, 50, is accused of running her husband Bill Hall Jr. off of Loop 1604 near Macdona-Lacoste Road while he rode a motorcycle October 10.

Bill Hall Jr. died at a local hospital hours after the accident.

The couple owned and operated Bill Hall Jr. Trucking together.

Frances Hall also faces a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Investigators with the Bexar County Sheriff's Office said she used her Cadillac Escalade to repeatedly ram a Range Rover driven by her husband's girlfriend, Bonnie Contreras.

Contreras told KENS 5 Frances' Escalade struck the Range Rover several times before Frances turned the vehicle into Bill's motorcycle.

Alan Brown, Frances Hall's defense attorney, called the crash an accident and said Contreras is not a victim in this case.

He said Contreras repeatedly texted Frances photos of Bill and her having sex, even after the married couple reconciled.

Brown indicated those photos will be submitted as evidence during the trial, along with airfare receipts showing that Bill and Frances had planned a trip to Hawaii together.

Wednesday, Judge Herr also ordered Hall to submit weekly drug tests and to have no contact with Contreras.

KENS 5 spoke with Contreras Wednesday afternoon.

She said she wants the nightmare to be over .

The assistant district attorney assigned to the case declined to comment, but told KENS 5 off camera the Bexar County Sheriff's Office has not completed its investigation.

Investigators have indicated the couple was in the process of getting a divorce, but a check of Bexar County court records indicated paperwork was never filed by Bill or Frances.
