CHARLESTON, W.Va. — Two people are in police custody after a standoff situation in Kanawha County Tuesday afternoon.

It all started after U.S. Marshals, the Kanawha County Sheriff’s Department SWAT team and Charleston police attempted to serve a warrant for Miguel Quinones Jr. at an apartment complex off of Hillcrest Drive.

Police said Quinones was out on parole after being convicted of murder in 1995. A 2010 warrant was out for his arrest because of a parole violation.

Once police arrived, Quinones barricaded himself inside the apartment for over an hour. Officers had to forcibly enter the apartment using tear gas before eventually dragging Quinones out.

Quinones was hiding out in his girlfriend, Shawnique Hudson’s, home, and she was also arrested.

Quinones is also named in connection to the ongoing investigation into the murder of Kareem Hunter of Charleston.

He has not been charged in that case as of yet. Quinones is only being charged with a parole violation and drug possession.

    1995 murder conviction and out? Suspected in another murder? Another argument for Capitol punishment.

      I would settle for sterilization for both of them.

    Sounds like a nice well-adjusted, society giving couple. It is so nice that we have so many young productive citizens in WV. I am sure they were working on their household budget and baking Christmas cookies.

    I am proud to be one of many who pat for their home, healthcare, income, phone and food.
