Blanchard mother Jaymie Adams was stabbed 18 times in the back and her jaw was broken in three places during the assault that ended her life, an autopsy released Tuesday shows.

Adams, who was 25 and about eight weeks pregnant at the time of her death, was found Jan. 7 by motorcyclists near Lake Stanley Draper.

The woman's autopsy report shows she was killed by multiple stab wounds. Her death was ruled a homicide.

Justin Adams, her husband, has been charged with her murder but was recently released from jail. He also has been charged in the murder of the unborn child.

The state medical examiner waited more than seven months to release the autopsy on Adams, a mother of four.

Found naked except for a winter coat, Adams was stabbed at least 29 times, including four times in the head.

Head injuries factor

The doctor performing the autopsy noted that head injuries contributed to Adams' death and that her jaw was shattered into three pieces.

The woman also had cuts to her hands and stab wounds to her neck and torso.

Adams was reported missing by her husband Dec. 9, but he quickly became a suspect in the woman's disappearance.

Justin Adams was arrested in January and charged with two counts of murder. He was released on $100,000 bail.
