Suspect in Janesville double homicide could begin legal proceedings in WI as soon as Dec. 14

JANESVILLE, Wis. – Nearly 10 months after being suspected of killing two women near Highway 14 in Janesville, Marcus Randle-El will soon return to Wisconsin for legal proceedings.

Randle-El will be released from Menard Correctional Center in Illinois on Dec. 14, according to Rock County Assistant District Attorney Jerry Urbik, who will be prosecuting the case along with Assistant District Attorney Alex Goulart.

Urbik said in a phone call Wednesday afternoon that Randle-El’s extradition hinges on a Randolph County, Illinois judge signing off on extradition papers first signed in another county.

If the judge should not sign off, Urbik says he and other prosecutors would have to pursue a Governors warrant, a process he believes could take as long as 90 days.

In late February, Randle-El was charged with two counts of first degree intentional homicide, one count of operating a weapon without consent, and a felony for being a felon in possession of a firearm in relation to the murders of two women, 27-year-old Brittany N. McAdory and 30-year-old Seairaha J. Winchester.

The two women were found with gunshot wounds in the 3200 block of Midvale Street on Feb. 10 and later died from at a nearby hospital.

Janesville Police Lt. Charles Aagaard confirmed in an email to News 3 Now that county officials had began drafting extradition plans to bring Randle-El from Illinois, where he was serving time on a previous sentence, to Rock County.

Urbik says all jury trials in Rock County have been delayed until late January. He anticipates a trial for Randle-El could be delayed as long as Summer 2021.
