Marcus Randle El has been convicted of two counts of first-degree homicide and other charges in the February 2020 shooting deaths of two women.
The former Wisconsin wide receiver and brother of former Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antwaan Randle El also was convicted of being a felon in possession of a firearm and one count of operating a vehicle without consent while possessing a weapon.
It only took jurors two hours to find him guilty in the slayings of 27-year-old Brittany McAdory and 30-year-old Seairaha Winchester. Prosecutors stated Randle El suspected Winchester was informing police of his drug dealing and that he killed McAdory to eliminate her as a witness.
