WASHINGTON — The ex-boyfriend of a Maryland woman found dead in her home says the woman had recently expressed concerns about her safety after her estranged husband re-emerged in her life.
Ronald McCombs told The Associated Press that 51-year-old Jane McQuain told him about two weeks ago that she feared something bad could happen to her. McQuain was found dead Wednesday night in Germantown, about 30 miles northwest of Washington.
Her husband, Curtis Maurice Lopez, was arrested Thursday in North Carolina and charged in her death. Pennsylvania records show he was imprisoned from 1987 until 2000, when he was paroled.
McQuain’s 11-year-old son William remained missing Friday. He has not been seen for about two weeks.
McCombs says he was romantically involved with McQuain from 1995 to 2007.
