Texas woman’s death caused by ‘homicidal violence,’ Medical Examiner says

The Associated Press - April 10, 2019 11:59 am

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – The Oklahoma Medical Examiner’s Office says a Texas woman died of “homicidal violence” before being buried in Oklahoma.

A summary of the autopsy on 28-year-old Jenna Scott of Temple was released Wednesday and refers to injuries in a full report. The summary says that report isn’t available and a spokeswoman didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

Scott and 32-year-old Michael Swearingen of Temple were found dead in a shallow grave in Clearview, about 80 miles east of Oklahoma City. A previous autopsy says Swearingen was strangled.

Scott’s ex-boyfriend, 44-year-old MMA fighter Cedric Marks, is being held on murder charges in the deaths, which he has denied.

Marks prompted a manhunt Feb. 3 when he escaped from a private prison van. He was recaptured nine hours later.
