ROCKVILLE, Md. (AP) — A service has been scheduled for a Germantown woman and her son who were killed last week.
Her estranged husband, the boy’s stepfather, is suspected in the slayings.
Jane McQuain, 51, and her son, William McQuain, 11, will be remembered at a service Saturday at 1 p.m. at Cedarbrook Community Church in Clarksburg. Family and friends are invited; the media have been asked to stay away.
The McQuains’ bodies were found in separate locations this month.
Jane McQuain’s husband, 45-year-old Curtis Lopez, has been charged with her death and is a suspect in William’s death.
The McQuain family said in a statement that William was a spirited boy and outstanding athlete.
Jane McQuain overcame adversity in her life, which the family said took on new meaning when William was born.
