Md. Murder Suspect Arrives In State From N.C.

ROCKVILLE, Md. (AP) — A man accused of killing his estranged wife and suspected in slaying his stepson has arrived in Maryland from North Carolina to face charges.

Montgomery County, Md. police say 45-year-old Curtis Lopez, who was released from the jail in Charlotte early Wednesday, arrived in Rockville about 1:50 p.m. Wednesday.

Jane McQuain, 51, and her 11-year-old son, William McQuain, were found in separate locations in Montgomery County last month.

Lopez had waived his right to a hearing to fight extradition to Maryland.

Lopez is charged with the first-degree murder of Jane McQuain, who was found in her condominium in Germantown, Md., about 30 miles northwest of Washington. The boy’s remains were found in a wooded area of the county.

    He can breath alittle easier now that he is coming to md.. No harm will come to him here. He’ll probably be out with a ankle monitor in week and in 2 weeks he’ll be commiting rape. Brought to you by your elected officials

    Great case for death penalty. Until the penalty is enforced these murders will continue. Trial, conviction, speedy execution. Until this happens the murders will continue.

    I hate knowing that you two are dead on. His life will be spared and a little boy and his mother lie dead because of his actions. It’s disgusting. It’s amazing O’Malley listend to the Catholic church when they opposed the death penalty, but ignores them with the Gay marriage bill. The authorities had enough to convict him before he was captured. There is no room for reasonable doubt in this case. He should get leathal injection even though that is too good a way for him to go.
