Police say employees of a private company transporting Cedric Marks stopped for food in Conroe Sunday, at which point Marks escaped their custody.

McGinnis says murder warrants were issued for Marks on Sunday in the deaths of an ex-girlfriend, Jenna Scott, and her friend, Michael Swearingin. The two were last seen alive on January 4 before their bodies were found in Clearview, Okla., on January 15.

Ms Scott requested a protective order against Marks last July and accused him of choking her unconscious twice, USA television station KCEN reported. 264th District Court Judge Paul LePak in Bell County denied her request.

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

Two women were arrested in MI on charges related to Marks.

In addition to the murders of Scott and Swearingin, according to KCEN, police in Minnesota consider Marks a person of interest in the 2009 disappearance of April Pease.

An arrest affidavit said Maxwell, who became a person of interest because she said she last saw Swearingin's vehicle, admitted she took the 2016 Hyundai Genesis to Austin and left it there to hide it from law enforcement agencies.

Marks, 44, was being transported from Grand Rapids, Michigan, to Bell County in Texas, according to the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office. KCEN-TV said Maxwell is accused of taking Swearingin's auto to Austin in an attempt to hide it. Officials warned the escaped prisoner was "extremely risky". He allegedly would threaten her every time she tried to break up with him, and even choked her until she lost consciousness twice.

Pease went missing in March 2009 and Marks got custody of their son.

Marks has not been named as a suspect in the disappearance of Scott and Swearingin.

Maya Maxwell is charged with evidence tampering and is jailed in Bell County, Texas, on US$150,000 (NZ217,000) bond.

Last month, Marks' wife, Ginell McDonough, was arrested in Muskegon County, Michigan and charged with harboring a fugitive. She is accused of allowing Marks and Maya Maxwell (right) to stay in her home between January 5 and January 9. His last fight was in September of a year ago.
