Northwestern prof, Oxford worker to stay jailed before trial”

Wyndham Lathem, a Northwestern University microbiologist accused of stabbing a man to death, and Andrew Warren, an acquaintance from Oxford University, have been charged with first degree murder after being extradited to Chicago.

According to WLS, prosecutors said Lathem and Warren met online and eventually hatched a murder plan as a sort of sexual fantasy that would involve "killing others and then themselves".

He and 56-year-old Oxford University financial officer Andrew Warren are charged with first-degree murder in the death of Trenton James Cornell-Duranleau, a MI native who had been working in Chicago.

One day before the murder, Lathem put Warren up in a hotel near his high-rise condo, where Cornell-Duranleau was later found dead, the prosecutor said.

Cornell-Duranleau was sleeping inside that condo when Lathem let Warren inside at about 4:30 a.m. on July 27, prosecutors said.

Germany responded with outrage to Erdogan's comments, calling it an "unprecedented act of interference". The Turkish diaspora in Germany is estimated at about three million. "He knows no limits!"

Wyndham Lathem, 43, and Andrew Warren, 56, were extradited from northern California - where they surrendered on August 4 after an eight-day, nationwide manhunt - to Chicago early Saturday. Warren has been suspended from Oxford University. By then, authorities said Lathem and Warren had fled the city.

They surrendered separately to authorities in California earlier this month.

The body of Cornell-Duranleau was found in an apartment building after an anonymous call was made.

When it was all over, autopsy and police reports show that Cornell-Duranleau had been stabbed a total of 70 times, piercing his back, neck and chest.

Lathem allegedly decided that their first victim would be Trenton Cornell-Duranleau, his 26-year-old boyfriend. The two men charged with the crime had been emailing for months, and had developed an elaborate fantasy in which they would kill someone, and then kill each other simultaneously, authorities said.

Al Qaeda has exploited the conflict to try to deepen its influence in Yemen, repeatedly launching bomb and gun attacks. It said almost three-quarters of attacks on schools and hospitals " 38 of 52 " were also carried out by the coalition.

In a unusual twist, on the same day as the murder, Lathem made a $5,610 cash donation to Chicago's Howard Brown Health Center in the name "Cornell-Duranleau", according to the prosecution.

"What I can tell you is it was not domestic in nature like a husband, wife, or boyfriend, boyfriend, or a love triangle; that was not the motive", Deenihan said. "It was a little bit more dark and disturbing", Chicago police Detective Cmdr.

Lathem stabbed the sleeping Cornell-Duranleau "over and over in the neck and chest area", while Warren kept watch at the doorway, Toller added.

The case took freakish turns as authorities revealed Latham donated $1,000 to a Wisconsin library in the dead man's name and sent an apology video to friends and family.

Lathem arrived back in Chicago late Friday night, according to ABC Chicago.
