Oxford Uni Worker Charged With US Murder


A worker at Oxford University's been remanded in custody - after appearing in court in America charged with murder.

56-year-old Andrew Warren and Professor Wyndham Lathem are suspected of stabbing a hair stylist to death at his apartment in Chicago.

They spent more than a week as fugitives after his body was found.

Judge Edward Torpoco said:

"Based on the nature of the charge, the defendant is remanded and no bail is set."

After the hearing, Warren's lawyer, Ariel Boyce-Smith, said:

"Mr Warren is agreeable to being transported to Chicago, he wants the process to be started.

"I just want to remind everyone that he is presumed innocent and his agreement to go there to start the process is where we are now."

Warren says online that he lives in Swindon and has since been suspended from his job as senior treasury assistant. 

He had been reported missing to Thames Valley Police two days before the body was found.

Warren decided not to fight his extradition to Chicago to face a murder charge as he appeared in court in San Francisco on Friday.

He appeared in an orange prison-issued sweatshirt and jogging bottoms and will be held in custody.
