Two men wanted over stab murder in Chicago flat arrested in California

     HORROR Trenton Cornell Duranleau was murdered in Chicago on July 27

Feinberg Prof. Wyndham Lathem and Oxford University employee Andrew Warren were taken into custody in California on Friday, according to authorities.

Guglielmi said the victim was in a relationship with Lathem and knew Warren.

Following a US-wide manhunt for the two men, Briton Andrew Warren, 56, handed himself in almost 3,200 kilometres away in San Francisco while Wyndham Lathem, 42, gave himself up in Oakland.

Warren, of Swindon, Wilts, used to be a Stagecoach driver before becoming a senior treasury assistant at Somerville College at the University of Oxford.

Two academics, one attached to a United States university and the other to Oxford University, who went on the run for eight days after a fatal stabbing in Chicago have surrendered to police in California.

Trenton Cornell-Duranleau, a 26-year-old hairstylist, was found dead in a Chicago apartment last week with multiple stab wounds.

Police said Lathem had sent a video to friends and relatives apologizing for his involvement in the crime, which he called the "biggest mistake of my life".




Lathem, an associate microbiology professor, and Warren, a Somerville College resident at Oxford University, will appear separately in court before being extradited to IL, where they face charges of first-degree murder. Lathem is scheduled to be arraigned Monday morning.

Following the interrogations, we will have a press briefing outlining our case against them.

Police said there is no surveillance video of the encounter at the library and were at a loss to explain the donation. Both men were arrested on a charge of murder, Farrell said.

"I've never seen where suspects in a homicide would make a donation in the victim's name", said Lt. Edward Gritzner. About noon Friday, he said they received further information that they were still in the area. It was not clear how Warren, who was visiting from Britain, knew the other two men.

Cornell-Duranleau, who grew up in a small town in eastern MI, moved to Chicago a year ago after getting a job at a salon in the city.

While there, one of them made a $1,000 (£766) cash donation to the public library there in Cornell-Duranleau's name.
