CORUPS CHRISTI, Texas (AP) — The brother of slain Tejano (tay-HAH'-noh) superstar Selena has been jailed for not staying current on his child support payments.

A.B. Quintanilla (keen-tah-NEE'-yah) was taken into custody Wednesday during a court appearance in Corpus Christi, Texas.

Quintanilla had failed to appear at a scheduled hearing earlier this month. His attorney said Quintanilla was at his Florida home that day and hadn't been informed of the court date.
