JANESVILLE (WKOW) -- Charges were filed Friday in Rock Court Circuit Court against former Badger football player Marcus Randle El in connection with the Feb 10 homicide of two women in Janesville.

Brittany N. McAdory, 28, and Seairaha J. Winchester, 31, were found shot about 3:15 a.m. on Midvale Drive on Janesville's northeast side. They later died at the hospital.

Randle El was charged with two counts of first-degree intentional homicide and two weapons charges.

Randle El was not yet in the Rock County Jail as of Friday afternoon, as he awaits extradition from Illinois.

Randle El, 33, was taken into custody Feb. 15 after he turned himself into the Chicago Police Department.

He waived extradition Feb. 18 during a court hearing in Chicago.

After that, he was transferred to an Illinois Department of Corrections facility in Joliet because of a parole hold from a previous case.

McAdory and Winchester were last seen alive about 2 a.m. Feb. 10 at a nearby travel center along Highway 14.

Their car was found about 4:30 a.m. along I-294 in Justice, Illinois. Police said they believe the killer escaped the crime scene and dumped it there.

According to the criminal complaint, Randle El frequently came from Chicago to Janesville to deal drugs and had dealings with Winchester.

The complaint says Winchester told a friend she feared Randle El would kill her over money she owed him. The complaint states Winchester had a $320 drug debt to Randle El.

Court records say a snow plow driver in Illinois came across Randle El walking near McAdory's stolen SUV after the homicides. Records state the snow plow driver took Randle El to a Hoffman Estates gas station, where he appeared on surveillance video. Court records say a gas station clerk noted Randle El had blood on his hands.

The criminal complaint says sometime after the homicides, a Rock County Sheriff's deputy made a traffic stop of a car driven by former Badger football player Brandon Tobias, with Randle El as a passenger. Randle El was not arrested, but days later surrended to authorities in Chicago.

According to Illinois Department of Corrections, Randle El had previously served time for an armed home invasion in 2016. He was sentenced to six years for that charge in Cook County and released on parole in late 2018.

Randle El was a receiver for the Badgers football team in the mid 2000s. He's the younger brother of Antwaan Randle El, who had a career in the NFL as a player and coach.

The complaint says Randle El was also upset with Winchester for telling Randle El's family he was using drugs.
