Curtis Lopez, 45, of Montgomery County is accused of murdering Jane and William McQuain.

Prosecutors today announced a five-count indictment charging 45-year-old Curtis Lopez of Montgomery County with murder, robbery and kidnapping of his estranged wife and stepson.

He's accused of fatally stabbing Jane McQuain and beating her to death inside her Germantown home in late September. Lopez is said to have then picked up William McQuain, 11, and leading him into the woods before using a bat to kill him, leaving a bat at the scene of the murder. Police were only able to find young William's body when surveillance video was found at a storage facility depicting Lopez with the boy.

Lopez has been in custody in North Carolina since Oct. 13, after police tracked him down when his girlfriend crashed the car belonging to Jane McQuain.

Lopez's public defender did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
