Husband pleads guilty to manslaughter in Blanchard wife's death

OKLAHOMA CITY —

Justin Adams, the husband of Jaymie Adams who was found murdered in early 2012, pled guilty to two counts of manslaughter Wednesday in an Oklahoma City court.

Adams was initially charged with her murder, but those were lowered in 2013 when evidence suggested he was only involved in the death of his wife, who was pregnant at the time. The charges carry a 10-year sentence with at least six months of jail time, but Adams was released for time he already served.

In the investigation after her death, prosecutors claimed that the Blanchard couple were involved in an online prostitution scheme linked to Craigslist. Joseph Cyr was later arrested and charged with first-degree murder for the death of Jaymie Adams' and her baby. Prosecutors say he had sex with her right before she died, and DNA evidence from her body matched that of Cyr's.

He is expected in court in March. Jaymie was found with 29 stab wounds on a bike trail near Lake Stanley Draper in southeast Oklahoma City. Her husband reported her missing in December of 2011.

Adams faced manslaughter charges because prosecutors said he aided and abetted her death by posting the ads promoting prostitution online.
