Suspect in custody in death of DC-area woman

Montgomery County police say a suspect is in custody in the death of a woman and the disappearance of her 11-year-old son.

There's no immediate word on the status of the boy, William McQuain of Germantown.

Earlier Thursday, police reported the discovery of an SUV owned by 51-year-old Jane McQuain. They declined to say where it had been found.

Officers found McQuain dead in her home Wednesday night. Investigators say there was trauma to her body and they consider her death a homicide, but they declined to elaborate pending an autopsy.
