Police tracked him leaving the hotel and travelling to Piccadilly Station before catching a train back to Leeds on CCTV.
Armed officers raided a house in Leeds two days later and arrested Jeffers, with searches of his home finding a partially scrawled note denying knowledge of the incident.
Detective Inspector Roger Edwards, from GMP’s Stockport division, said: “This was a horrifying incident that has left a woman with life changing injuries that will affect her for the rest of her life.
” After showering, Lathem and Warren left the apartment an hour after the stabbing began, the prosecutor said.
They surrendered to California authorities on August 4 after an eight-day manhunt and were returned to Illinois several days ago.
