Man wanted in connection with 3 murders escapes police custody

An "extremely dangerous" former pro mixed-martial arts fighter suspected in three killings escaped from custody early Sunday north of Houston, Texas authorities say.

But Sunday, when he escaped a van in Conroe, Montgomery County officials notified the public he has three pending murder charges. He escaped while the van was at a McDonald's in Conroe, and was last seen wearing an orange jumpsuit and restraints. Bell County was notified of the escape at 8 a.m.

Marks, who has not been charged in their deaths, was jailed in MI awaiting extradition for allegedly breaking into Scott's home back in August, according to the television station.

Marks, who fights under the nickname "Spiderman", according to mixed martial arts website Sherdog, is 44 years old, stands 5-foot-11-inches tall, and weighs 185 pounds.

He has multiple charges against him, but Temple Police Department has only confirmed a first-degree burglary of a habitation charge filed against him for the alleged August break-in into Scott's home.

Marks was arrested in MI just a couple days later with another girlfriend. According to an arrest affidavit, she told detectives that she drove Swearingin's vehicle to Austin in an attempt to hide it from investigators.

The circumstances surrounding the murder charges against Marks were not immediately clear.

Maxwell had been in the Muskegon County Jail in MI since her January 11 arrest.

Police in Bloomington, Minnesota, say Marks remains a person of interest in the 2009 disappearance of April Pease, who was the mother of one of his children. Anyone who spots Marks is asked to contact law enforcement immediately. She went missing in March 2009 while living in a women's shelter in Bloomington, and Marks got custody of their son.
