(Rockville, MD) –The man accused of killing his estranged wife and his eleven-year-old step-son last month in Montgomery County, will remain held without bond.
Forty-five-year-old Curtis Lopez was extradited from Charlotte, North Carolina after being linked to the murders of Jane and William McQuain of Germantown. Montgomery County State’s Attorney John McCarthy says it appears Lopez was captured with an SUV stolen from Mrs. McQuain.
The mother’s stabbed and beaten body was found inside her home on October 12th, touching off a search for her son, whose beaten body was found in Clarksburg October 18th. Lopez was detained in Charlotte last month and now will await his next court appearance early next month.
Montgomery County State’s Attorney John McCarthy says surveillance cameras indicate the murder weapon for the boy was a baseball bat.
