Former MMA fighter facing murder charges captured after escaping prisoner van

Manhunt Underway for Escaped MMA Fighter Wanted for 3 Murders

The burglary charge Marks was arrested on was related to Scott.

In this photo provided by the Kent County Michigan Sheriff's office, Cedric Marks is pictured in a booking photo in Grand Rapids, Mich., dated January 8, 2019. The van held 10 prisoners and two guards, although only Marks escaped, KCEN reported.

The Houston Chronicle reported one victim is Marks' former girlfriend, who met him on Tinder and had a restraining order against him.

The Montgomery County Sheriff's Office and the Conroe Police Department are searching for an escaped prisoner considered extremely risky, who fled during a prisoner transport.

Cedric Marks had been in transport from MI since January 31. Their bodies were discovered 12 days later buried on rural property in Oklahoma. He was in the process of being extradited back to Bell County by Texas Prisoner Transport Services when he escaped, McGinnis said. They had warned the public he should be considered "extremely unsafe".

26-year-old Maya Renee Maxwell was also arrested, charged with evidence tampering after police say she left Swearingin's vehicle in Austin in hopes of concealing it from police.

It was not immediately clear how Marks escaped.

Marks, who fought MMA professionally for 20 years, was known as "Spider Man", last fought in September and had a record of 31-27-0.

Maya Renee Maxwell, 26, is charged with tampering or fabricating physical evidence with the intent to impair, a third-degree felony. She said he took her cellphone to prevent her from calling 911.

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

She was accused of allowing Marks and Maxwell to stay in her home between January 5 and January 9.

The two were involved in a fierce custody dispute in Washington state and Pease, who had a drug problem, went to live in a Bloomington women's shelter because she said she was afraid of Marks.

The search for Marks drew a massive law enforcement presence north of Houston, with part of Interstate 45 being shut down during the manhunt.

Hartley said Marks' and Pease's son was placed into protective custody in 2009 and he doesn't know the boy's current location.
