can quantum mechanics explain why electron has a charge???
and why is that a charged body is always associated with matter?

MY OPINION: Charge is Like mass.Everything in the universe which creates a "bump" in the gravitational field has mass.That bump is experienced as gravity.Similarly bump(CONSTANT) in electric field creates force and particles causing forces-> we call it charge one type charge produces attractive and other repulsive.Similarly we have discovered antimatter which does not attract but repel each other.If we throw a ball it will move UP!!!

String theory can explain this. Though String theory is not verified till now.
charge is the fundamental property of matter. It's similar to like a matter has some mass..
