Former University of Wisconsin football player Marcus Randle El has been sentenced to two consecutive life sentences for the murder of two women.

Randle El played for the Badgers from 2004 to 2007 and was convicted in January of two counts of first-degree homicide and other charges in the February 2020 shooting deaths of Brittany McAdory and Seairaha Winchester in Janesville, Wisconsin.

Rock County Judge Barbara McCrory announced that Randle El will be eligible to petition for early release and extended supervision after 60 years.

The defense argued that the state did not meet its burden of proof and called just two witnesses.

However, prosecutors pointed to surveillance footage and text messages linking Randle El to the murders.

The former college football player declined to testify in his own defense.

During the sentencing hearing, Winchester’s mother, Justine Watson, took the stand and shared her heartbreak.

She stated, “To see my daughter laying there lifeless was heartbreaking. What was even worse was knowing her daughters have to now go through life without their mother.”

Randle El’s brother, former Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver and current Detroit Lions coach Antwaan Randle El, spoke on behalf of his brother during the hearing.

He asked the judge to give his brother an opportunity, stating, “This is not who he is or who we have come to know.”

While Randle El may be eligible for early release, his sentence serves as a reminder that violent crimes have serious consequences.

The families of the victims will continue to grieve their loss while Randle El serves his time.
