A former college football player at the University of Wisconsin has been convicted of killing two women almost three years ago.
On Jan. 24, a jury in Janesville found former wide receiver Marcus Randle El, 36, guilty of two counts of first-degree murder, being a felon in possession of a firearm, and one count of operating a vehicle without consent while possessing a weapon in connection with the 2020 slayings of Brittany McAdory, 27, and 30-year-old Seairaha Winchester, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
The publication reported that prosecutors claimed during trial Randle El, who was linked to the murders through text messages and surveillance video, fatally shot Winchester after he became suspicious she had informed authorities about his drug dealing.
He then murdered McAdory because she was a witness to the crime, prosecutors said.
The women's bodies were discovered in the early morning hours of Feb. 10, 2020, and Randle El turned himself in to police in Chicago five days later.
The defendant played for the UW Badgers between 2004 and 2007 and is the younger brother of former NFL player Antwaan Randle El, the current wide receivers coach for the Detroit Lions.
