An MMA fighter, accused of killing his ex-girlfriend and another man, was captured after escaping from a prisoner transport van in Conroe.
Conroe police Lt. Scott Spencer tweeted Sunday evening that Cedric Marks was taken into custody after a nine-hour manhunt involving multiple law enforcement agencies.
Authorities say he was found hiding between two houses in Conroe.
Police said Marks escaped Sunday morning from the private prison transport van during a stop at a McDonald’s in Conroe, about 40 miles to our east in Montgomery County.
Murder warrants were issued Sunday for Marks in last month’s killings of an ex-girlfriend, Jenna Scott, and a friend of hers, Michael Swearingin, who disappeared Jan. 4 and were found on Jan. 15 buried in a shallow grave in Clearview, Oklahoma.
