The Latest: Professor faces hearing in Chicago killing


CHICAGO (AP) — The Latest on the California arrests of Northwestern University professor and a University of Oxford employee wanted in the fatal stabbing of a Chicago man (all times local):

11:25 a.m.

A Northwestern University professor arrested in Oakland, California, in connection with a brutal stabbing in Chicago faces a first court appearance on Monday after he turned himself in to authorities.

The Alameda County jails website says Wyndham Lathem is scheduled for a 9 a.m. court appearance in the San Francisco suburb of Pleasanton.

The site says he was arrested on a fugitive warrant at 7 p.m. Friday, booked into jail at 11:40 p.m. and is being held without bail.

Andrew Warren, a University of Oxford employee, was also wanted in the case and surrendered at a San Francisco police station Friday night.

The San Francisco jail website says Warren was booked at the county jail at 1:32 a.m. Saturday but lists no information about when he will appear in court.

The two men had been fugitives since the body of 26-year-old Trenton James Cornell-Duranleau was found in Lathem’s Chicago apartment on July 27.


2 a.m.

A Northwestern University professor and a University of Oxford employee wanted in the brutal stabbing death of a Chicago man surrendered peacefully in California and will be returned to Chicago for interrogation, federal and local authorities said.

Wyndham Lathem, 42, gave himself up late Friday at the Oakland federal building and Andrew Warren, 56, surrendered at about the same time to the San Francisco Police Department, according to Michael McCloud, fugitive taskforce commander with the U.S. Marshals Service.

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

Authorities said they will appear separately in court before being extradited to Illinois.

Both face charges of first-degree murder in the killing of 26-year-old Trenton James Cornell-Duranleau.
