Northwestern professor, Oxford staffer arrested in California for Chicago murder

AP News in Brief at 12:04 am EDT

A manhunt had been underway since July 27 when the body of Trenton Cornell-Duranleau was discovered inside Latham's Chicago apartment says the Tribune.

The U.S. Marshals Office said Wyndham Lathem-a 42-year-old associate professor of microbiology and immunology at Northwestern-turned himself in at a courthouse in Oakland.

McCloud said the surrender of the two suspects was "negotiated", although he declined to say how that happened.

Police have not said what they believe motivated the crime.

Lathem was booked into the Alameda County jail.

Arrest warrants for first-degree murder in Chicago were issued earlier this week for both men.

Lathem and Warren are awaiting extradition to IL. It was not immediately clear when that would happen.

"Both individuals will be held accountable for their actions, and we hope today's arrest brings some small level of closure and justice for the victim's family", Chicago Police Department spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said. Check with US Marshals Service on specifics of the apprehension.

"We got word within the hour that they have both been captured and are in police custody".

The two men are expected to appear before a court in California before begin extradited to Chicago.

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

Both men - taken into custody without incident - will appear before an Oakland court and are now awaiting extradition to IL, where they will be questioned by Chicago homicide detectives. Ed Grittzner says a person handed a library worker $1,000 in cash. Police have not released that video. Law enforcement agencies across the United States have been notified to be on the lookout for the two men, who are considered armed and unsafe.

Warren, a Somerville College resident at Oxford University, was taken to the San Francisco County Jail.

Police say Lathem knew Cornell-Duranleau, who moved to Chicago from MI after receiving his cosmetology license, reports the AP.

Warren had recently arrived in the USA for the first time but it is not yet clear whether he had known the victim beforehand. The victim was found last week stabbed to death in a River North high-rise apartment building.

Investigators speculated that the suspects may have made the donation because of a feeling of remorse, he said.

The pair had been named as suspects in the attack that was so brutal the blade of the knife used in the murder had broken off, police said.
