The Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals has upheld the murder convictions and life without parole sentences of a man in the stabbing death of a pregnant woman, KFOR reports.
The court on Thursday rejected appeals by year-old Joseph Cyr in the deaths of year-old Jaymie Adams and her unborn baby. A Craigslist encounter in Oklahoma City ends in murder.
A pregnant woman goes to McDonald's and vanishes into thin air. Where is Jaymie Adams? Jaymie's husband Justin Adams makes a tearful plea for her return. But Jaymie would never see that TV report.
She was already dead. Her mutilated body was found a month later on a dirt-bike track in a remote field. Twenty-nine stab wounds ended the life of Jaymie, who was two months pregnant, and her unborn .
Justin Adams reportedly told cops Jaymie went out that night to meet a friend. Investigators say that friend was a "john.
Prosecutors say Jaymie advertised on Craigslist to find her customers. A single mom trying to feed her kids," said Tina Clark. And as it turns out Jaymie's pimp was her own husband -- and, cops believed, her killer. Justin Adams was soon charged with murder. Justin Adams denied it. His defense team says there was no physical evidence tying him to Jaymie's killing.
Justin was eventually released from jail and the murder charges were dropped.
During the investigation detectives say Justin Adams posted a shocking ad on Craigslist: "I am letting any willing man come and have his way with my wife with a little compensation for us to help with our holiday funding. Investigators say cellphone records tie Cyr to the timeline of Jaymie's death.
They say his phone "pinged" a cell tower in the area where Jaymie's van was found. Cyr was charged with her murder. He denied he did it. Though investigators found his DNA on her body, there was no blood or other physical evidence linking him to the crime. The trial went quickly, and so did the deliberations.
After seven hours the jury delivered its verdict: "The defendant [Cyr] is guilty with fixed punishment set at life without the possibility of parole. Joseph Cyr showed no emotion as he learned his fate.
He was also convicted of the murder of Jaymie's unborn. Bailiffs cuffed Cyr and took him away.
The D. Justin pleaded guilty and received two year suspended sentences. His mother says his real sentence will be much longer. He will live with guilt for the rest of his life.
