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.

"Our primary focus is to facilitate a safe surrender and we strongly encourage Professor Lathem and Mr. Warren to do the right thing and turn themselves into any police department in the USA or contact CPD [the Chicago Police Department] and we will make any necessary accommodations", Guglielmi said. The other suspect, Andrew Warren, a treasury assistant at one of Oxford's residential colleges in England, was being held at the county jail in San Francisco. Both men will appear in court in California before extradition to IL.

The attack was so violent that the blade of the knife believed to have been used to kill Cornell-Duranleau was broken, Guglielmi said. Chicago police described Lathem and Warren as armed and risky, although authorities said that they surrendered without incident in California. He turned himself in at the Federal Courthouse in Oakland.

He was reported to be on the run with Professor Wynsham Lathem, 42, from Northwestern University in IL.

They have been accused of fatally stabbing Trenton Cornell-Duranleau, 26, in Lathem's apartment in Chicago on July 27.

"Whatever the circumstances, we would urge him to contact the USA authorities as soon as possible, in the best interests of everyone concerned".

"We are also thankful both men are safely in custody and this did not end in further tragedy".

Guglielmi also said that the duo will appear in an Oakland court before returning to Chicago where they will be questioned by homicide detectives. Lathem's passport and Warren's travel visa were restricted.

The Chicago Tribune reported Friday afternoon that Lathem sent a video to family members and friends in which he apologized for "his involvement" in the killing.

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. They have said they are still trying to determine how Cornell-Duranleau or Lathem knew Warren, or if Warren knew them before he flew to the United States for the first time ever three days before the slaying.

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