CHICAGO — The former Badger football player accused of killing two women in Janesville is expected to appear in Cook County Court on Tuesday, according to jail records.

Marcus Randle El, 33, of Homewood, Illinois, turned himself in at a police station in Chicago this weekend. He was a member of the University of Wisconsin-Madison football team from 2004-2007.

Last week, Brittany McAdory, 27, of Joliet, Illinois and Seairaha Winchester, 30, of Janesville were found bleeding and unresponsive near the intersection of Midvale and Deerfield Drives.

Both were taken to a local hospital where they later died from gunshot wounds.

Police believe Randle El, McAdory and Winchester had plans to meet later that morning.

After the homicides, police said Randle El took McAdory’s Jeep Black Cherokee and dumped it on Interstate 294 in Justice, Illinois.

Randle El has a criminal history in Dane County, including disorderly conduct and battery charges in 2005.

“This is a simple tragedy,” Clarence Winchester, Seairaha Winchester’s father, said during a vigil last week.

“She was a very carefree girl. She loved everybody.”

Coworkers of McAdory also attended the vigil.

“She was very bright,” coworker Marquita Hayes said. “On bad days she’d come and she’s always smiling.”

Both women leave behind young children.
