The Northwestern University professor and University of Oxford employee wanted in a stabbing death in River North were arrested in California on Friday night, according to authorities.

The U.S. Marshals Office said Wyndham Lathem—a 42-year-old associate professor of microbiology and immunology at Northwestern—turned himself in at a courthouse in Oakland. Andrew Warren—a 56-year-old senior treasury assistant at Somerville College of Oxford—surrendered at a police station in San Francisco, according to the Tribune.

Chicago Police Department spokesperson Anthony Guglielmi shared news of the arrests via Twitter:

The two men are suspected in the July 27 murder of Trenton Cornell-Duranleau, 26. The victim was found last week stabbed to death in a River North high-rise apartment building.

Lathem and Warren reportedly donated $1,000 to a library in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin in the name of Cornell-Duranleau shortly after the murder happened.

Before he surrendered, Lathem sent a video apology to family and friends over his role in the murder, police said on Friday. Cornell-Duranleau, a Pilsen resident, had reportedly moved to Chicago after completing cosmetology school in Michigan. Authorities have not released information about possible motives.
