2 suspects in stabbing death brought to Chicago

AN OXFORD University employee and a American professor are accused of murdering a 26-year-old hair stylist in Chicago as part of a sick sexual fantasy.

Natosha Toller, an assistant Cook County state's attorney, told a judge Sunday that Lathem and Warren had communcated online for months about "carrying out their sexual fantasies of killing others and then themselves".

Detectives have ruled out a love triangle between an Oxford University employee, a United States professor and their alleged murder victim, who was found with more than 40 stab wounds, police have said.

WGN-TV reported that neighbors said Lathem and Cornell-Duranleau were in a relationship. He had worked at the university as an associate professor of microbiology.

He was sacked from the prestigious school August 4 "for the act of fleeing from police when there was an arrest warrant out for him". Lathem instructed Warren to record cellphone video of what would happen next, Toller said, though for some reason Warren never did.

At the bond hearing Sunday, according to The Chicago Tribune, Lathem's attorney Barry Sheppard submitted copies of dozens of letters attesting to his client's character and professional achievements.

The body was discovered at around 8.30pm on July 27 after the building's front desk received an anonymous call that a crime had taken place on the tenth floor. He had been stabbed 47 times in his back, chest, shoulder and abdomen.

Premier League Summer Transfer Window to Close Before Start of Next Season?
Albion agree with plans for the summer transfer window to close for Premier League clubs before the start of next season. However, clubs from other European leagues could sign players from England in line with their own domestic deadlines.

"After the victim went to sleep in defendant Lathem's apartment, Lathem text defendant Warren that it was time to kill Trenton [Cornell-Duranleauand]".

In a odd 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 as far as I'm concerned". Lathem surrendered in Oakland and Warren in San Francisco.

Both donations were made in the name of his dead boyfriend, "Cornell-Duranleau".

Lathem and Warren both appeared in court in California last week, where they agreed to return to IL to face charges.

Autopsy results show a Chicago man who was slain in the apartment of a Northwestern University professor last month had methamphetamine in his system at the time.
