Northwestern professor charged with murder
California prosecutors have charged a Northwestern University professor with murder in connection with the stabbing death of a 26-year-old Chicago man.
Wyndham Lathem was charged in Alameda County on Monday in the July 27 fatal stabbing of Trenton James Cornell-Duranleau, whose body was found that night in Lathem’s Chicago apartment.
Lathem and Andrew Warren, a financial officer at England’s Oxford University, were on the run for about a week before they surrendered Friday to authorities in Oakland and San Francisco. Lathem’s attorney, Kenneth H. Wine, said before the hearing that Lathem would plead not guilty.
Warren doesn’t have an initial court appearance scheduled yet.
