Hearing in Md. set for man charged in death of estranged wife, suspected in stepson's death
ROCKVILLE, Md. (AP) ' A man charged with killing his estranged wife and who is suspected in the death of his stepson is making his first court appearance in Maryland since being arrested in North Carolina last month.
Curtis M. Lopez is scheduled for a hearing Thursday to determine if he'll remain held without bond on a murder charge.
He arrived in Maryland on Wednesday and is being held at the Montgomery County jail.
Lopez was arrested in Charlotte, N.C., on October 13 and charged in the death of 51-year-old Jane McQuain, who was found beaten and stabbed in the bedroom of her home in Germantown, northwest of Washington.
McQuain's 11-year-son William was found dead the following week. Police say they expect to charge Lopez in the boy's death as well.
