Two men charged in a grisly River North murder have arrived back in Chicago after being extradited from California, two weeks after they surrendered to authorities in the Bay Area after a nationwide manhunt.

Andrew Warren, a payroll assistant at Oxford University, arrived in Chicago shortly before midnight, and former Northwestern University professor Wyndham Lathem arrived early Saturday, according to the Associated Press.

According to authorities in California, Lathem, a microbiology expert, and Warren were being transported from jail to Chicago to face first-degree murder charges.

They are expected to be interviewed by detectives for most of the weekend, CPD spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said.

Lathem is being represented by attorney Adam Sheppard. Warren will be represented by a public defender.

The pair are accused of fatally stabbing Trenton Cornell-Duranleau in Lathem’s River North apartment last month.

Autopsy results released this week said Cornell-Duranleau was stabbed 47 times, with significant incised wounds to his neck.
