    Dead Texas Woman Dumped in Oklahoma: Report
    NBC 5/KXAN
    Two bodies found in Oklahoma are believed to be 32-year-old Michael Swearingin, left, and 28-year-old Jenna Scott, right. The couple was reported missing in Temple -- their car was later found in Austin.

    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.

    New Study Says Beards are 'Dirtier' Than Dogs

    [NATL] New Study Says Beards are 'Dirtier' Than Dogs

    A recent study suggests that a man's beard contains more germs than a dog's fur. All 18 men's beards studied by researchers at Switzerland's Hirslanden Clinic had higher levels of bacteria in them, compared to only 23 out of 30 dogs. Some beards had so much beard bacteria the men could get sick, the study says.

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