Pair, sought in Chicago killing, arrested in Bay Area

The Oxford University treasurer suspected of murdering a hairdresser in Chicago has been caught by police more than 2,000 miles from the crime scene after a US-wide manhunt.

"We got word within the hour that they have both been captured and are in police custody".

In a statement, Chicago police said: "Both individuals will be held accountable for their actions and we hope today's arrest brings some comfort for the victim's family". "We are also thankful that this did not end in further tragedy".

The pair had been named as suspects in the murder of Trenton Cornell-Duranleau, a 26-year-old hairstylist, who was found dead in a Chicago apartment last week with multiple stab wounds.

Warren and Lathem are accused of repeatedly stabbing the victim in the apartment before fleeing.

Mr. Lathem and Cornell-Duranleau were involved in a relationship at one point and had "some type of falling out", the police spokesman told the Chicago Tribune.

According to police, Lathem sent a video message to various friends and family members apologizing for his alleged involvement in the killing.

Chicago police said the two will go before an Oakland court and be returned to Chicago.

The security forces are going after militants as part of operation "hunt down" and on the basis of a "hit list" of militants. Security personnel lobbed tear gas shells and fired a few shots in the air to restore law and order in the area, he said.

Warren, of Swindon, Wilts, used to be a Stagecoach driver before becoming a senior treasury assistant at Somerville College at the University of Oxford.

Chicago Police Department chief spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said: "Shortly after the murder Mr Lathem and Mr Warren drove to the Lake Geneva library where they made a $1000 donation in the victims name".

"I've never seen where suspects in a homicide would make a donation in the victim's name", said Lt. Edward Gritzner.

Warren's city of residence is listed as Oxford on his arrest warrant.

He said: "We were not in contact with them directly".

Lathem's passport and Warren's travel visa have been restricted, Guglielmi said.

Mr Warren, a Somerville College employee who is in charge of payroll and pensions, was reported missing by his family to Thames Valley Police on July 25 from his home in Longcot. However, Lathem and Warren's relationship with each other ( as well as Warren's link to Cornell-Duranleau ) is unknown.

"This is now a criminal matter under investigation by the appropriate authorities, and Northwestern University is cooperating in that investigation", according to the statement.
