ROCKVILLE, Md. (AP) — The husband of a slain woman was arrested in North Carolina on Thursday and charged with first-degree murder, but police said they were still searching for her missing 11-year-old son. The boy lived with his mother but was not home when officers arrived.
Curtis Lopez, 45, was taken into custody around 9:30 a.m. Thursday as he was leaving an EconoLodge in Charlotte, N.C. The arrest came after Jane McQuain was found dead in the bedroom of her condominium on Wednesday night in Germantown, about 30 miles northwest of Washington.
Police found her car, but not her son, William McQuain. He was last seen Sept. 30, police said. William is Lopez's stepson.
