Aircraft X turned direct to aco after marrs on the departure route instead of proceeding east to sphre then turning southeast to aco. Aircraft X had to be stopped at FL210 and turned east to prevent an error or midair collision from happening with aircraft Y at FL220. Aircraft Y was swbound from alb to ict. Aircraft X told me he was cleared ACO2 departure maars direct aco direct flo (his destination). Det controller claims aircraft X was cleared det ACO2 aco flo (which is what the strip said). This is the second time within less than 6 months that I have personally had an aircraft make a wrong turn on the aco departure and come into conflict with another aircraft. The marrs aco departure route has been an on going problem since its inception.

Title: ZOB CONTROLLER DESCRIBED CONFLICT NEAR FL210 WHEN DEPARTURE AIRCRAFT TURNED DIRECT ACO AFTER MAARS; CONTRARY TO SID ROUTING; REQUIRING CONTROLLER INTERVENTION TO MAINTAIN SEPARATION; CONTROLLER ALLEGING MULTIPLE OCCURRENCES.
Narrative: ACFT X TURNED DIRECT TO ACO AFTER MARRS ON THE DEP RTE INSTEAD OF PROCEEDING E TO SPHRE THEN TURNING SE TO ACO. ACFT X HAD TO BE STOPPED AT FL210 AND TURNED E TO PREVENT AN ERROR OR MIDAIR COLLISION FROM HAPPENING WITH ACFT Y AT FL220. ACFT Y WAS SWBOUND FROM ALB TO ICT. ACFT X TOLD ME HE WAS CLRED ACO2 DEP MAARS DIRECT ACO DIRECT FLO (HIS DEST). DET CTLR CLAIMS ACFT X WAS CLRED DET ACO2 ACO FLO (WHICH IS WHAT THE STRIP SAID). THIS IS THE SECOND TIME WITHIN LESS THAN 6 MONTHS THAT I HAVE PERSONALLY HAD AN ACFT MAKE A WRONG TURN ON THE ACO DEP AND COME INTO CONFLICT WITH ANOTHER ACFT. THE MARRS ACO DEP RTE HAS BEEN AN ON GOING PROB SINCE ITS INCEPTION.
