BELTON — Suspect Cedric Marks, shackled and cuffed, loudly and firmly proclaimed Friday morning in the courtroom, “Absolutely not guilty, your honor,” when asked how he pleaded to the charge of capital murder of multiple persons.

Marks said he was not present when Jennifer Scott, his ex-girlfriend, and Michael Swearingin, her friend, were killed, reportedly at a residence in Killeen. He said someone else was with Maya Maxwell — not him — his attorney, Michael White, told the Temple Telegram.
