So Mary murdering him due to her political beliefs makes for a better motive than Grace, who is uncomfortable in the household, dealing with Nancy's jealousy of her, but who doesn't seem to have a strong motive for murder. In real life, Marks and McDermott never claimed innocence of the murders, but they did lay the blame for the actual crimes at each other's feet. Each said that the other was the one who wanted to kill Kinnear and Nancy and then actually went through with it, with the unwitting accomplice claiming only to have helped clean it up after the fact.
The show does present both sides by way of having Dr. Jordan read McDermott's confession to Grace, but the series definitely leans to the side of Grace as the unwitting accomplice. No one can ever truly know if the murders were committed by Marks, McDermott, or both, but the two of them did go on the run after the murders.
They were eventually apprehended in New York and put on trial back in Canada. McDermott was found guilty of murder, and Marks was charged as an accessory. They were both sentenced to death, but Marks's sentence was commuted to life in prison, probably due to her young age. McDermott was promptly hanged, and Marks was sent to an asylum and then a penitentiary, where she resided for nearly 30 years.
During her time in jail, Marks was a model prisoner and was pardoned in her mids. She left Canada and moved to northern New York, when all records of her cease to exist. She essentially vanished at that point. But according to a Smithsonian magazine article about the mystery, Marks always maintained she was not a murderer , blaming her incarceration on "having been employed in the same house with a villain," meaning McDermott.
