Marcus Randle El, the younger brother of former Steelers standout Antwaan Randle El and a former wide receiver for the Wisconsin Badgers, was found guilty of killing two women in Wisconsin in 2020.
An Associated Press report that a jury held Randle El responsible for the shooting deaths of Seairaha Winchester, 30, and Brittany McAdory, 27, in Janesville, Wisconsin, guilty of two counts of first-degree murder.
During the trial, prosecutors said that Randle El thought Winchester was a police informant who was trying to get him to sell narcotics, and that he also killed McAdory to get rid of her as a potential witness in the first murder.
Marcus Randle El Guilty of Killing 2 Women
Randle El fatally shot two women in 2020, Outkick reported. Prosecutors believe he killed Winchester because she informed authorities about his drug operations and then killed McAdory because she was a witness.
Text messages and security footage were used to secure the conviction even though the police were never able to locate the murder weapon.
His brother, former NFL player Antwaan Randle El, was present when the decision was read in the Rock County courthouse.
Marcus Randle El will be sentenced on May 3. Marcus Randle El likely never leave a jail cell again in this lifetime given the ferocity of the act and the counts he was found guilty on.
