Marks has been in custody for three pending murder charges, and he is a professional MMA fighter, Montgomery County authorities said.

Cedric Joseph Marks, 44, eluded police custody Sunday morning in Conroe, Texas, about 40 miles north of Houston, while the transport van had stopped at a McDonald's, Montgomery County Sheriff's Office said on Twitter, labelling the escapee as "extremely risky".

Marks was being taken from a prison in MI after being captured by US Marshals on a warrant for burglary of a home.

The two were reported missing January 9, and their bodies were discovered January 15 in Oklahoma by the Temple Police Department, Temple police said on its website. He was wearing an orange prison outfit and was in restraints, but after he escaped, he was able to get out of his shackles and take off his shirt, according to officials.

The protective order says Scott and Cedric Marks began dating in August of 2015.

Marks was extradited from Kent County, Michigan on January 31 for a burglary charge in Temple, where he allegedly broke into Jenna Scott's home.

Marks, 44, who calls himself "Spiderman" when in the MMA cage, has been all over the country during his adult life, records show.

Asked on the board if she would be Meghan's doula, Ms Mishcon posted a winking emoji, adding: "I'm busy in Spring". However, the royal couple didn't appear to take the slip up too seriously, and the boy continued his explaining.

April Pease, Marks' ex-girlfriend and mother of a son, was reported missing March 17, 2009, according to The Charley Project.

Marks has been an MMA fighter for more than 19 years, according to an MMA fighter database.

The Montgomery County Sheriff's Office's initial tweet about Sunday's escape said Marks was facing three "pending murder charges", but it didn't immediately respond to requests for further information about those charges. During this time, Scott told both Marks and Scott had open investigations against each other for assault-family violence crimes in Killeen.

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

Ginell McDonough (left), 37, who is Marks' wife and the mother of two of his two children, is jailed in Muskegon County, Michigan, on an obstruction of justice charge.

According to an arrest affidavit, she told detectives that she drove Mr Swearingin's vehicle to Austin in an attempt to hide it from investigators. His last fight was in September.
