The night she went missing was supposed to be the last night Jaymie Adams prostituted herself to pay the bills, the woman’s husband testified Wednesday.

The testimony by Justin Adams was delivered at Oklahoma County District Court during a preliminary hearing for Joseph Richard Cyr, 32, who faces two counts of first-degree murder in the killing of Jaymie Adams and her unborn child.

Special Judge Fred Doak ruled Wednesday that Cyr should stand trial on the murder charges.

Justin Adams testified that he typically accompanied his pregnant wife when she met men for paid sexual encounters, but stayed home the night of her death to babysit three of the couple’s children.

The body of Jaymie Adams, 25, was found Jan. 7, 2012, at a dirt bike track in southeast Oklahoma City.

A trial date for Cyr, of Tulsa, has not been set, but he is due back in court April 16 for a pre-trial hearing.

Justin Adams reported his wife missing in the early hours of Dec. 10, 2011. He testified Wednesday that he initially hid the fact that she was a prostitute from police, hoping to keep her out of trouble if she was found safe.
