During a Feb. 14 hearing, the Muskegon County Prosecutor's Office said that Ginell McDonough, 37, was concealing Marks' rifle at her U.S. Army Reserve office in Muskegon. 

WZZM said that McDonough's attorney confirmed that she was a staff sergeant in the U.S. Army. 

McDonough was charged with harboring a felon, her husband Cedric Marks and Maya Maxwell. 

Maxwell told police that Marks had killed Jenna Scott and Michael Swearingin, who were allegedly murdered on Jan. 3. 

Maxwell admitted to officials that she was present at the home where the two were killed by Marks and was there for the transport and burial of their bodies in Ofuskee County, Oklahoma. 

Maxwell and Marks were extradited back to Bell County. Marks escaped from aprison transport and launched a nine-hour manhunt in Conroe on Feb. 3

According to WZZM, McDonough waived her right to a preliminary hearing.
