Marcus Randle El was sentenced to two consecutive life sentences on Wednesday.

The former Wisconsin Badgers wide receiver was convicted on two counts of first-degree murder in February 2020 in the fatal shooting of 27-year-old Brittany McAdory and 30-year-old Seairaha Winchester in Janesville, Wisconsin.

Prosecutors in the case alleged that Randle El killed both women because he thought one might tell the police about his drug dealing. And he allegedly killed the other female because she was a witness at the time of the crime.

Investigators were able to find text and look at surveillance videos to back up their claims.

Even with his conviction, Randle El can still petition for an early release after serving 60 years in prison (30 a piece). He would be 93 years old.

Randle El played for the Badgers back in the early 2000s from 04-07 and he is the brother of former NFL star wide receiver Antwaan Randle El, who spoke up on his brother’s behalf.

“This is not who he is or who we have come to know,” Antwaan Randle El said. “All I’m asking judge is to give him (an) opportunity.”

Although the weapon used was never found, the prosecutors had enough evidence and witnesses to convict the younger Randle El.
