CONROE, Texas (AP) - An MMA fighter facing murder charges who was recaptured after escaping from a prison van says he had "nothing to do with" two bodies found in a shallow grave in Oklahoma last month.
Cedric Marks told TV station KPRC2 during a Thursday video call from a Texas jail that he's not guilty of killing Jenna Scott and Michael Swearingin.
Marks says police "coerced" a witness against him and that he "was not trying to escape" Sunday when he somehow freed himself from the van outside a McDonald's near Houston. The witness, Maya Maxwell, said she was there the when the murders happened.
