Sheriff: MMA fighter facing 'pending murder charges' escapes

Cedric Joseph Marks Mugshot

Marks is now charged with burglary of a habitation with the intent to commit another felony after he allegedly broke into Scott's home in August, the Temple Daily News reported.

Video from the scene shows multiple officers and sheriff's deputies running in a parking lot of nearby Walmart, as well as the shoulder of Interstate 45 with police K9's.

KCEN reported that in a court document before she was murdered, Scott called Marks "a pathological liar" and "a psychopath".

Marks was en route to Bell County by Texas Prisoner Transport Services from Grand Rapids, Michigan, where he had been arrested by U.S. Marshalls for burglary with intent to commit another felony, Conroe Police Lt. Dorcy McGinnis said in a media Conference. According to reports out of Central Texas, the Scott and Swearingin cases have Bloomington police taking a second look at Marks, although he had an alibi 10 years ago.

Cedric Marks had been in transport from MI since January 31.

It was not immediately clear how Marks escaped.

However, Scott and her boyfriend, Michael Swearingin were both found dead January 15 in rural Oklahoma, after being missing for a couple of weeks, KCEN-TV is reporting.

Marks' wife, Ginell McDonough, is facing charges of harboring a fugitive, as she's accused of allowing Marks and Maxwell to stay with her while authorities were looking for them, KCEN-TV said.

She also reported to police that Marks had broken into her home in August while her nine-year-old daughter was there.

After a 9 hour manhunt, police have captured an MMA fighter who escaped custody.

Maya Maxwell is charged with evidence tampering and is jailed in Bell County, Texas, on $150,000 bond. According to an arrest affidavit, she told detectives that she drove Swearingin's vehicle to Austin in an attempt to hide it from investigators. She also said she had her phone in her hand, and Marks took it from her and threw it. She is accused of allowing Marks and Maxwell to stay in her home between January 5 and January 9.

Another Marks ex-girlfriend, April Pease, the mother of his child, disappeared in 2009 in Minnesota.

The two were involved in a fierce custody dispute in Washington state and Ms Pease, who had a drug problem, went to live in a Bloomington women's shelter, saying she was afraid of Marks. "If you see him contact law enforcement immediately!"
