Man Arrested In GR With Ties to Couple Murdered in Texas
A man was arrested in Grand Rapids who has ties to a couple that was found dead in rural Oklahoma who are originally from Texas. Sound confusing...oh wait...there is much more.
According to FOX17, Texas police say the bodies of two missing Texans were believed to be found in Okfuskee County in Oklahoma. 28-year-old Jenna Scott and 32-year-old Michael Swearingin were last scene in Temple, Texas and their car was found abandoned in Austin.
The ex-boyfriend of Scott, 44-year-old Cedric Marks, was arrested in Grand Rapids on a burglary warrant from Texas for breaking into Scott's home in Temple, Texas. Police in Texas are awaiting his extradition.
A Muskegon woman, Ginell McDonough, has also been arrested for harboring her husband Marks and a 26-year-old woman Maya Maxwell who were wanted by police in Texas.
Just when you think this story couldn't get anymore twisted, Marks is also a person of interest in Minnesota in a disappearance of 30-year-old ex-girlfriend April Pease who has been missing since 2009.
