JANESVILLE, Wisc. (Heartland Newsfeed/Ambush Sports) — A former University of Wisconsin football player was arrested Saturday in connection to a double homicide that took place earlier in the week.

According to Janesville Police Department chief David Moore, Marcus Randle El turned himself in Saturday afternoon with the arrest made by the Chicago Police Department in relation to the deaths of 30-year-old Seairaha Winchester of Joliet, Ill. and 28-year-old Brittany McAdory of Janesville.

The 33-year-old Randle El played as wide receiver for the Wisconsin Badgers from 2004 until 2007.

He is the younger brother of former NFL player and current Tampa Bay Buccaneers offensive assistant coach, Antwaan Randle El.

Charges pending, according to Moore, are two counts of first-degree intentional homicide.

UPI’s Daniel Uria revealed that Winchester and McAdory were found shot near an intersection in Janesville and taken to a nearby hospital, where they were later pronounced dead.

Lt. Charles Aagaard and investigators recovered video, confirming the two victims entered a gas station around 2 a.m. Monday, showing evidence that they were planning to meet with Randle El later in the morning, who was also at the gas station.

All three left the gas station in a car owned by McAdory and were not seen again until a passing motorist spotted them dumped on the side of the road with multiple gunshot injuries. McAdory’s car was later found along an interstate highway in Illinois, roughly 30 miles northwest of Randle El’s hometown of Homewood.

Randle El had been recently out of jail on parole following charges of kidnapping related to an incident in Illinois, allegedly taking his 3-year-old daughter at gunpoint, according to court records at the time of the shooting. He had also previously arrested and charged with misdemeanor battle on two different occasions in 2005.
