    Pro MMA fighter Cedric 'Spider-Man' Marks, girlfriend indicted in Texas for capital murder

    Excerpts:
    A professional MMA fighter known as “Spider-Man” and his girlfriend have been indicted on capital murder charges in Texas in the killings of the athlete’s ex-girlfriend and her male friend.

    Cedric Marks, 44, and Maya Maxwell, 26, were also charged with tampering with evidence in the deaths of Jenna Scott and Michael Swearingin, whose bodies were found in a shallow grave in Oklahoma on Jan. 15, said Bell County District Attorney Henry Garza, who announced the indictments Wednesday.

    Swearingin, 32, died of asphyxiation from being strangled, the Austin American-Statesman reported, citing an autopsy report. Scott's autopsy has not been completed, but the indictment said the 28-year-old died from "homicidal violence."

    Scott’s family told the paper that she had ended her relationship with Marks because he was abusive.

    Garza said that a decision on whether the prosecutors would pursue the death penalty will be announced after the case is reviewed.

    Marks prompted an “exhausting 9 hour manhunt” in February when he escaped from a private prison van that had stopped at a Texas McDonald’s while transporting him from Michigan, where he was arrested. He was recaptured and taken to the Bell County Jail.

    Marks is 31-27 and lost his last six fights.

    Problem is, he might be 90 by the time he gets out.
