Jury selection begins for trial of man accused of killing former son-in-law

Jury selection begins Tuesday for the trial of Javier Quinones, the man accused of murdering his former son-in-law.

William John Wolff, an El Paso Community College professor was found shot to death in December 2015 outside his brother’s law office on the 4200 block of Skyline, in northeast El Paso.

Police say Javier Quinones shot Wolff and then fled to Mexico with his wife, Guadalupe Quinones, and daughter Erika Wolff. William and Erika Wolff shared a daughter whom police say was also taken to Mexico.

William had just been awarded custody of the then 2-year-old girl. According to court documents obtained by ABC-7, Wolff’s ex-wife had a history of violating orders concerning the child.

The three were arrested in January 2016 in California after they crossed back into the United States.

Erika Wolff and her mother, Guadalupe Quinones, each face a charge of Interfering with Child Custody. It’s unlcear if a trial date is set for them.
