Boffins deny bru­tal killing

The Advertiser - - WEEKEND EXTRA -

A FOR­MER North­west­ern Univer­sity pro­fes­sor and an Ox­ford Univer­sity em­ployee pleaded not guilty yes­ter­day to first-de­gree mur­der charges over the stab­bing death of the pro­fes­sor’s boyfriend.

Wyn­d­ham Lathem, 46, and An­drew War­ren, 56, stood qui­etly in sep­a­rate Chicago court hear­ings, only briefly an­swer­ing when Judge Ur­sula Wal- owski asked if they un­der­stood the charges.

The judge re­ferred to the July 27 stab­bing as “ex­cep­tion­ally bru­tal” and said it was car­ried out in a “cal­cu­lated and pre­med­i­tated man­ner”.

The men are ac­cused of at­tack­ing Tren­ton Cor­nel­lDu­ran­leau, 26, as he slept in Lathem’s Chicago apart­ment, stab­bing him dozens of times.
