The murder of a hairstylist in Chicago was part of a sexual fantasy hatched in an online chatroom between a former professor of an American university and a bursar of Oxford University, prosecutors said on Sunday (20 August).

Andrew Warren, 56, a senior treasury assistant at the institution's Somerville College, is accused alongside Professor Wyndham Lathem, 42, of murdering Trenton Cornell-Duranleau. The two then allegedly carried out their murder plan.

He and 43-year-old Wyndham Lathem, a former Northwestern University professor, face charges of first-degree murder for the death last month of Trenton James Cornell-Duranleau, a MI native who had been working in Chicago.

Lathem allegedly decided that their first victim would be Trenton Cornell-Duranleau, his 26-year-old boyfriend.

Lathem continued to stab the man, while Warren went to get more knives, prosecutors said.

In the messages, which he sent to his parents and friends, the now-fired Northwestern professor, who did academic work on the bubonic plague, says that "he is not the person people thought he was", according to the prosecutor.

Investigators say Lathem, who was sacked after the killing, had a personal relationship with Cornell-Duranleau.

Witnesses later told officers they had heard a fight and screaming at around 5am and detectives found two knives at the scene, one of which had been broken.

Warren flew into Chicago's O'Hare International Airport a few days before the fatal stabbing, the prosecutor said.

"Defendant Lathem then stabbed the victim over and over in the next and chest area". Lathem instructed Warren to record cellphone video of what would happen next, Toller said, though for some reason Warren never did. He had been been stabbed 47 times in his back, chest, shoulder and abdomen.

She said the victim's last words were addressed to Lathem: "Wyndham, what are you doing?"

But Lake Geneva authorities said the man making the donation didn't give his name. Lathem also anonymously called the front desk of his apartment building to say that someone should check his room as a crime had been committed there. "It was a little bit more dark and disturbing as far as I'm concerned".

An autopsy found Cornell-Duranleau died of multiple sharp force injuries, according to the Cook County Medical Examiner's office, and his death was ruled a homicide.

A post-mortem examination found the victim, originally from Corunna, Michigan, had methamphetamines in his system. The pair, who are wanted in Chicago on first-degree murder warrants, waived extradition and are expected to appear in bond court at the Leighton Criminal Courthouse, 2650 S. California Ave.
